"In Gaza under Hamas, Bjorn Brenner provides an inside view of Hamas in power, based on extensive fieldwork alongside trenchant insights and incisive analysis. His book is an important contribution to the literature by greatly enhancing our understanding of the evolution of terrorist organizations from grassroots violence to formal governance." - Bruce Hoffman, Professor and Director of Security Studies, Georgetown University. Author of Inside Terrorism, "This is one of the rare books about Hamas that manages to be both balanced and insightful. Based on a broad range of primary sources, this in-depth study of Gaza under Hamas rule provides as full and comprehensive a picture as possible. A must-read for scholars, students, and diplomats alike!" - Peter Neumann, Professor of Security Studies at the War Studies Department, King's College London; Director of the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation, "Bjorn Brenner provides a well-researched, timely and extensive account of Hamas's complex approach to governance, also offering a very interesting portrait of life in the Gaza Strip." - Benedetta Berti, Fellow at the Institute for National Security Studies; Robert A. Fox Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute; TED Senior Fellow, 'For academic researchers, policy makers, NGOs and broader civil society members interested in Islamist experiences and practices of governance this is a must read. The book not only helps address many misconceived notions about the challenges which Hamas has faced since it was elected in 2006 but it also assists readers in nuancing the particular context in which such a case of Islamist governance actually operates.' - Michelle Pace, Professor of Politics and International Studies, Department of Social Sciences and Business, Roskilde University; Honorary Professor, University of Birmingham
