The election of the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed el-Morsi as President of Egypt has sharpened the focus on the role of Islamist movements in a rapidly changing Middle East. Social and political movements based on a political reading of Islam have for decades been among the largest, best organized and most effective forces in many Arab countries. Since the Arab uprisings last year, they have faced new opportunities and challenges -- from elections in Tunisia and Egypt to fighting in Syria and Libya. brings together reporting and analysis from nearly two dozen of the world's top experts on such movements. Collecting essays originally published in ForeignPolicy.com's Middle East Channel, this collection offers well-informed, timely and highly readable analysis of a major trend reshaping a vital region of the world.
