First published in 1969 as part of a series edited by renowned Islamic scholar Albert Hourani, this book has been the standard source for the history of the revivalist Egyptian movement--the Muslim Brethren up to the time of Nasser. The Muslim Brethren are now well-recognized for theirfoundational role in the Islamic revival which has now taken on new, and perhaps dangerous, life in recent times. After having been out of print for over a decade, this reissue of the classic work makes it accessible to a new generation of scholars and students interested in the Muslim revival--agroup whose numbers have increased dramatically in the past decade. The new paperback edition has a foreword by John Voll, a leading American Islamic scholar, discussing the subsequent history and continued significance of the Muslim Brethren.

From Our Editors

One of the first serious studies of what it is now customary to call the 'resurgence of Islam' and it still remains one of the best...It helps us to understand why they have survived so many changes of fortune and are still a powerful force in Egypt and other Muslim countries.

Editorial Reviews

"The Society of the Muslim Brothers is a major seminal work that remains the standard history of the early Muslim Brotherhood. Essential reading for understanding the growth of contemporary Islamic movements across the Muslim world."--John Esposito, Georgetown University
