Claiming Society For God: Religious Movements And Social Welfare: Egypt, Israel, Italy, And The United States
Claiming Society for God focuses on common strategies employed by religiouslyorthodox, fundamentalist movements around the world. Rather than employing terrorism, as much ofpost-9/11 thinking suggests, these movements use a patient, under-the-radar strategy ofinfiltrating and subtly transforming civil society. Nancy J. Davis and Robert V. Robinson tell thestory of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Shas in Israel, Comunione e Liberazione in Italy, and theSalvation Army in the United States. They show how these movements build massive grassroots networksof religiously based social service agencies, hospitals, schools, and businesses to bring their ownbrand of faith to popular and political fronts.
