The strong influence of traditional and religious groups on modern politics is a significant factor in the development of many countries. Lucy Behrman focuses on the West African country of Senegal and provides a detailed investigation of the political roles of Muslim religious organizations there. She analyzes the historical conditions under which Muslim brotherhoods emerged as a political force and the ways in which the present pattern of political relations was established, and examines the contemporary function of the brotherhoods in Senegalese politics.
