In this data-filled account, the author provides a concise and informative topography of Lebanon's oft-neglected Sunni Islamic movements – dealing with their origins, orientations, founding members and various socio-political and institutional initiatives. Rare details are provided on movements and affiliated institutions – including schools, mosques and media organizations – of the Lebanese tableau where scholarly interest has been dominated by concentration on Ḥizb Allāh. Included are reviews of al-Jamāﺀah al-Islāmīyah (the Islamic Group); Jabhat al-ﺀAmal al-Islāmī (the Islamic Action Front); Ḥarakat al-Tawḥīd al-Islāmī (the Islamic Tawḥīd Movement); Ḥizb al-Taḥrīr al-Islāmī (the Islamic Liberation Party); Jamāﺀat al-Daﺀwah wa al-Tablīgh (the Daﺀwah and Tablīgh Group); Jamﺀiyat al-Mashārīﺀ al-Khayrīah al-Islāmīyah–al-Aḥbāsh (The Association of Islamic Charitable Initiatives); as well as the major Lebanese salafist movements.
