Dr H.A. Hellyer s Books

Books and Monographs

“A Revolution Undone: Egypt s Road Beyond Revolt” (Oxford University Press)

“…. A fresh take…the work of an engaged observer…” (Times Literary Supplement) “…considers Egypt’s recent uprisings and descent into military rule… Hellyer writes engagingly…” (Foreign Affairs) “In short, the book was a brilliant read, and at times, painstakingly detailed…” (Huffington Post) “meticulously unpicks the struggle for power that began after Mubarak stepped down, going beyond simplistic depiction of Egypt’s post-revolutionary politics as a battle between a (secular) military and so-called deep state against an Islamist or religious opposition.” (Financial Times)


“Muslims of Europe: the Other Europeans” (Edinburgh University Press)

“Muslims of Europe: The Other Europeans is a thoughtful and ambitious reflection on the place of Islam and Muslims in Europe.” Jonathan Laurence, Professor, Boston College

“Both specialists and the general reader will find this book a valuable aid in understanding the dynamics of diversity in the contemporary world.” John O. Voll, Professor, Georgetown University

… essential reading for students, scholars, policy makers and for those who wish to understand the complex relationship between European Muslims and their societies.   Muhammad Anwar OBE, Professor, University of Warwick

“I can think of few books that are more timely and important. H. A. Hellyer’s Muslims of Europe: The ‘Other’ Europeans is must reading for scholars, students and policymakers.” – John L. Esposito, Georgetown University 


“The Islamic Tradition and the Human Rights Discourse (Atlantic Council Press)


“A Sublime Way: The Sufi Path of the Sages of Makka”

“The Middle East has suffered significant intellectual and moral damage….it is a source of great reassurance to see that the authentic and indigenous spirituality of the Holy Cities has survived…and is now attracting many of the younger people who are seeking a merciful and authentic alternative to the fundamentalist project. This book is a very welcome indication of that timely change.”

 – Dr Timothy J. Winter/ Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad, Faculty of Divinity, Cambridge University Dean, Cambridge Muslim College
