Hamas (the Islamic Resistance Movement) has long been associated in the public mind with terror and violence. In this critical book, two Israeli experts show that, contrary to its image, Hamas is essentially a social and political movement, providing extensive community services and responding to political realities through bargaining and power brokering. The authors lift the veil on Hamas's strategic decision-making methods at each of the crucial crossroads it has confronted: the Intifada and the struggle with the PLO, the Oslo accords and the establishment of the Palestinian National Authority, and the choice between absolute jihad against Israel and the option of controlled violence. Now with a new introduction, this book does much to contextualize the current ascendancy of this controversial political movement.

Shaul Mishal is professor in the Department of Political Science at Tel Aviv University and director of the Institute for Israeli Arab Studies.Avraham Sela is professor of Middle Eastern studies in the Department of International Relations and research fellow at the Harry S. Truman Institute for the Advancement of Peace, both at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
