James Toth is an anthropologist who specializes in Egypt, the Arab world, and the wider Islamic community. He has conducted ethnographic research in northern Egypt on migrant farm labor and in southern Egypt on Islamic militancy. He was the director for Save the Children's community development program in Egypt in the 1980s, on the anthropology faculty at the American University of Cairo in the 1990s, and at Northeastern University in the 2000s. Since 2011, he has worked at New York University in Abu Dhabi.
Toth provides an important analysis of one of the most influential Muslim thinkers of the twentieth century. He presents a portrait that includes Qutb's activities as a young Egyptian intellectual as well as his later works as an articulator of militant Islamic ideologies. A special strength of this study is that Toth provides a much-needed contextualization of Qutb within Egyptian intellectual life during the first two-thirds of the twentieth century. * John Voll, Professor of History, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University *
