Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book, which presents various ideological aspects of the Muslim Brotherhood, in adopting a viewpoint that is essentially socio-anthropological. More precisely, the book analyses the manner in which a certain heritage of ideas has been appropriated and even actualized by members of the Muslim Brotherhood movement: it attempts to grasp their relations to the sources of the movement's philosophy in an effort to understand the sources of their strength, and determines how great this strength really is, as opposed to how great it is imagined to be. Beginning with an analysis of the contemporary re-appropriation of the heritage of the Brotherhood by European Muslims, the book attempts to discern the real source of the force of the Brotherhood, in terms of spiritual and intellectual resources capable of mobilizing the energy of the people.
