The Rumbling Volcano
Islamic Fundamentalism in Egypt
by: Nabeel T. Jabbour (Author)
A remarkable study on the ancient roots and the present realities of Islamic fundamentalism, especially as it is being expressed in Egypt and the Arab world. The author objectively and compassionately attempts to understand Islamic fundamentalism from the inside and examines what it is like to “get under the skin” of leaders such as Khumeini, Hasan al-Banna, and Sayyid Qutb.
