Abstract

In Rentier Islamism: The Influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in Gulf Monarchies, Courtney Freer explores the complex history of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait, Qatar and the UAE, arguing that the political economy of these states gives rise to a particular form of political Islam – rentier Islamism – by which the Muslim Brotherhood exercises political capital through informal and gradual means. Hasan Alhasan recommends this an indispensable resource for both students of political Islam and of the Arab Gulf states.
