Authoritarian Containment

Public Security Bureaus and Protestant House Churches in Urban China

Marie-Eve Reny

  • Provides a complex and nuanced picture of unregistered religious leaders' dealings with local state actors
  • Focuses on two Middle East cases: President Sadat's containment strategy toward the Muslim Brotherhood in 1970s Egypt and the Mukhabarat's containment of jihadi Salafists in a post-Zarqawi period
  • Demonstrates how authoritarian regimes have employed similar strategies to control the activities of informal religious organizations
