The Rise of the Islamic Movement in Sudan (1945-1989)
Abdelwahid, Mustafa A.
This work applies Social Movement Theory (SMT) to the study of the Islamic Movement of Sudan, paying particular attention to understudied mechanisms of contention and successful expansion, and the factors which facilitated the Movement’s rise in influence.
“[This work] examines a topic on which very little is written in English, on its own terms, from the inside out, giving us a nuanced understanding of both the intellectual bases and the internal workings of the movement.”
– Prof. Jill Crystal, Auburn University
“. . . fills a gap in the existing literature by carefully detailing the conditions that gave rise to a powerful Islamic movement in Sudan . . .” - Prof. William Crowther, University of North Carolina
