Description - The Islamic Movement in Egypt by Walid Mahmoud Abdel-Nasser
This is a detailed study of the perception of foreign policy issues and the international system by the various components of the Islamic movement in Egypt from 1967 to 1981. Despite the growing need for other nations to become acquainted with the stands of Islamic countries on foreign policy questions, previous Western studies have concentrated on the domestic role of Islam in Muslim countries. This work throws light upon wider issues of Islamic foreign policy, as well as contributing to an understanding of the Egyptian case. The work provides a thorough historical background to the Islamic movement in Egypt, examines its attitude towards specific countries such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Lebanon, Syria and the Sudan, involving such "internal" issues as Islamic unity, Arab nationalism and unity and the means, nature and objectives of that unity, and "external" issues such as the attitudes towards the United States and the former Soviet Union, and the question of Palestine.
