Eyptian author Tarek Osman explores the events which converged and led to the rise of Islamism from the 1970s onwards, a force which came to fill the vacuum left by Arab Nationalism. He investigates the reasons for the re-emergence of the Muslim Brotherhood, the influence of the conservative, oil-rich Gulf states like Saudi Arabia, and the three pivotal events in 1979 which boosted Islamism.
