Egypt and Its Unsettled Islamism

(p.185) 7Egypt and Its Unsettled Islamism

Asef Bayat

Oxford University Press

The aim of this chapter is to examine the modality behind a pervasive Islamist sector in Egypt, with a history that goes back the birth of the Muslim Brotherhood in 1928. The Islamic mode in Egypt during the 1998s and 1990s was so pervasive that as if a silent Islamic social revolution had swept the country. Why is that there was little of a post-Islamist movement or thought in Egypt until the late 2000s when a largely post-Islamist and post-ideological public emerged to spearhead the Egyptian revolution of January 25th? Examining this question, the chapter discusses the dynamics of religious politics in Egypt since the 1970s.
