Islamic Fundamentalism In Egyptian Politics

By Barry Rubin
St. Martin's, 1990
180 pp. $39.95

A competent assessment of the various fundamentalist movements existing in Egypt today: their history, ideology, organization, leadership, factionalism and political impact. While the book does not really get inside these movements, the research into their pronouncements and publications is most thorough and seems to justify the author's studied conclusion that a takeover of government by radical fundamentalists is most unlikely. The disruptive potential of these forces, however, should not be ignored.
