Among Egyptian fundamentalist groups, one of the most important ideological debates has been whether the Egyptian regime or the West should be the primary target of action. This classic work is updated to analyze how internal debates, coupled with the government's defeat of the insurgency through violence and cooptation, led many Egyptian radical fundamentalists to join Usama bin Ladin and focus on attacking America. It includes excerpts and an analysis of the writings of Ayman al-Zawahiri, a veteran leader of the Egyptian movement who became Usama bin Ladin's right-hand man and helped plan the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

About the Author:

Barry Rubin is Director of Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA), Center of the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC). His books include Revolution Until Victory?, The Transformation of Palestinian Politics, & The Tragedy of the Middle East.

From Library Journal:

Despite their successful assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in 1981, Muslim fundamentalists have failed to seize and maintain power in Egypt. Rubin, the author of several acclaimed studies on the Middle East, attributes this failure to the fundamentalists' rigidity, contradictory philosophies, and, most importantly, to the observation that their brand of Islam is alien to most Egyptians. The qualities of forgiveness, modesty, clemency, avoidance, and patience as prescribed by the Koran must, according to some radicals, be overruled to establish an Islamic state. In the meantime, current Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has adopted a more moderate philosophy, allowing the opposing clergy and other groups to function freely, albeit within limits. For Rubin, this astute policy will ensure longevity for the Mubarak regime. For larger Egyptian/Islamic collections.
