Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a review of the book The Muslim Brothers in Europe: Roots and Discourse. The book has three parts. The first is a historical survey from the founding of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) to its migration and implantation in Europe. Part two deals with the role played by various important personalities within the MB, and the contribution made by individuals, from the founding period up to the present day. Part three analyses MB discourses "[. . .] to display the lines of tension that exist with regard to certain important topics, such as global Islam, the necessity of a militant attitude, a quest for recognition, etc.". The book, then, covers a number of topics in MB discourse. Brigitte Maréchal has focused mainly on the movement's 'timeless' questions, not on the development of its thought on how to face the European reality.

Keywords: Brigitte Maréchal; Europe; global Islam; Muslim Brotherhood (MB)
