Description du produit

Revue de presse

This thoughtful book deserves a wide readership. --Times Literary Supplement

An exemplary political primer on the Islamist party's evolution, structure and thought --New York Review of Books

Based on nearly a decade's fieldwork, over one hundred interview with key Hamas figures, substantial use of both primary and secondary sources, and much leavened by theoretical insights, this is an outstanding piece of research full of detailed analysis and nuanced judgement , which is rightly hailed by James Piscatori in his introduction. It is a major contribution to our understanding of Hamas in particular and Islamist movement in general. It will certainly go to the top of reading lists for my students; one can only pray that it reaches a similar position of those of the policy establishment. --Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society

Présentation de l'éditeur

In January 2006 Hamas, an organisation classified by Western governments as terrorist, was democratically elected to govern the Palestinian territories. The inherent contradictions in this situation have left many analysts at a loss. Hamas uses terror tactics against Israel, yet runs on a law and order ticket in Palestinian elections; it pursues an Islamic state, yet holds internal elections; it campaigns for shariah law, yet its leaders are predominantly secular professionals; it calls for the destruction of Israel, yet has reluctantly agreed to honour previous peace agreements. In Hamas in Politics Jeroen Gunning challenges thea ssumption that religion,violence and democracy are inherently incompatible and shows how many of these apparent contradictions flowfrom the interaction between Hamas s ideology, its local constituencyand the nature of politics in Israel/Palestine. Drawing on interviewswith members of Hamas and its critics, and a decade of close observation of the group, he offers a penetrating analysis of Hamas own understanding of its ideology and in particular the tension between its dual commitment to God and the people . The book explores what Hamas political practice says about its attitude towards democracy,religion and violence, providing a unique examination of the movement sinternal organisation, how its leaders are selected and how decisions are made.
