Hasan al-Banna (1906 - 1949) was an Egyptian political reformer, best known for establishing the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist organisation which today has millions of members and spans the Arab world. Through his ardent struggle to revitalise Islamic values amid increasing Westernisation, al-Banna promoted Islamic charity and personal piety throughout Egypt, becoming a powerful political force. In this well written and impartial biography, Kraemer gives a detailed account of al-Banna's life and work. Gudran Kraemer is Professor and Chair of Islamic Studies, Free University, Berlin.
