After Iran's 1979 Islamic revolution and the murder of President Anwar al-Sadat in 1981, many observers thought radical Islamic fundamentalists would seize power in the Middle East and especially in Egypt. But these groups did not take over, foment revolutions or even become a threatening opposition. This book explains their failue in Egypt, the most important Arab country and a key western ally. Egypt's many problems and strong piety offered opportunities to radical Islamic groups, which included the long-established Muslim brotherhood and a revolutionary underground capable of murdering the country's ruler. Yet fundamentalists' weaknesses and divisions and the clever policies of Egypt's rulers have kept them in abeyance.
