Claiming Society for God focuses on common strategies employed by religiously orthodox, even fundamentalist, movements around the world. Rather than using terrorism, as much of post-9/11 thinking suggests, these movements use a patient, under-the-radar strategy of taking over civil society. Nancy J. Davis and Robert V. Robinson tell the story of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Shas in Israel, Comunione e Liberazione in Italy, and the Salvation Army in the United States. They show how these movements build massive grassroots networks of religiously-based social service agencies, hospitals, schools, and businesses to bring their own brand of faith to popular and political fronts.
