About the Author

Shaul Mishal is professor in the Department of Political Science at Tel Aviv University and director of the Institute for Israeli Arab Studies.

Truman Institute for the Advancement of Peace, both at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.


"Two Israeli scholars weigh in with a provocative argument that runs counter to much of the false received wisdom on the subject... A convincing intervention in the public debate regarding Hamas& mdash;a debate that is mainly dominated by the group's demonization." -- Rashid Khalidi, author of Palestinian Identity "This work makes a significant and long overdue contribution to scholarship on Hamas and Islamist groups... Mishal and Sela have made here an excellent contribution to the field with a thoughtful, analytical, and well-documented case study which goes far in revealing a realist, 'de-demonized' Hamas." -- Middle East Journal "This book does much to contextualize this controversial political movement." -- Interaction "A necessary read." -- Sanford R. Silverburg, Digest of Middle East Studies
