The Society of the Muslim Brothers (Volume 2)

The Muslim Brotherhood has unquestionably emerged as one of the prominent Islamic-political movements in the modern history of the world. Founded in 1928 in Egypt by Hassan al-Banna, this organization has consistently exerted a significant influence on the political, social, intellectual, and cultural progressions within the Arab and Islamic world. Numerous books, along with thousands of articles and essays, have been dedicated to examining the history, ideologies, and actions of the Muslim Brotherhood. These diverse perspectives, expressed by both its supporters and critics, attest to its consequential global significance.

Among the authors who have extensively studied the Muslim Brotherhood is Richard Mitchell, a notable professor of history at the University of Michigan in the USA. Having earned his PhD in modern history in 1960, Mitchell dedicated his research to producing a book on the Society of Muslim Brothers. This book serves as a valuable supplement and refinement of his earlier work on the subject.

This full translation of the book, complete with insightful comments in footnotes, is specifically tailored for those who have a keen interest in understanding contemporary Islamic movements.
