The book explains how Islamist groups captured the hearts and minds of educated youth in Egypt. It focuses on the first twelve years of Hosni Mubarak's presidency, from 1981 to 1993, the period when participation in the movement reached its peak and before a wave of repression brought it to an abrupt end.

Carrie Rosefsky Wickham is associate professor of political science at Emory University. Her current project examines new trends in Islamic political thought and practice throughout the Middle East.
