Product description


'Raphaël Lefèvre's book sheds valuable light on the Islamist movements that seem poised to take power in a post-Ba th Syria. It draws on new primary sources, such as interviews with and memoirs of Brotherhood leaders and Western government archives. The definitive study of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, it also throws new light on its jihadi offshoots.' ---- Middle East Journal

'No book could be more timely than Lefèvre's on the Muslim Brotherhood. Anyone wishing to understand Syria must understand the long and bitter history of the Muslim Brotherhood's struggle with the Assad regime. Islamic groups are poised to take power in Syria and the Brotherhood is foremost among them. Westerners and Syrians alike who fail to appreciate the importance and centrality of the Brotherhood to Syria's modern history are foolish.' ----Joshua M. Landis, Director, Center for Middle East Studies, University of Oklahoma, and author Syria Comment

'To understand the blood-letting in Syria there is no better guide than Raphaël Lefèvre s brilliant, wonderfully-sourced and timely book. He demonstrates that the current vicious civil war is but the latest phase of a fifty-year struggle between the Muslim Brothers and the secular Ba th Party, which seized power in Damascus in 1963, overturning Syria's centuries-old socioeconomic and political order.' ----Patrick Seale, author of The Struggle for Syria and Asad: The Struggle for the Middle East

Raphael Lefevre is a Gates Scholar and PhD student at King's College, Cambridge University, where he also earned an MPhil in International Relations. He has published extensively on the Syrian Islamic movement and is the co-author of State and Islam in Baathist Syria: Confrontation or Co-optation?
