Based on extensive research and interviews with members of the Brotherhood and An-Nahda, this book offers a comparative analysis of the rise and fall of Islamist movements in North Africa since the Arab Spring. It also outlines the consequences of the Brotherhood's decline on the region and on the wider Islamist project.

"A masterful analysis enriched by access to excellent primary sources.’ -
Lorenzo Vidino, George Washington University
