    Edition: First printing.

    Palo Alto, CA: Stanford University Press, (2018) dj. Hardcover first edition - A title in the Stanford Studies in Middle Eastern and Islamic Societies and Cultures series, and the first comprehensive look at the history of Hamas.

He breaks new ground in questioning the conventional understanding of Hamas and shows how the movement's ideology ultimately threatens the Palestinian struggle and, inadvertently, its own legitimacy."
