520    What electoral mobilization choices do Islamist opposition
       parties make? How do they relate to authoritarian 
       incumbents? Which key factors influence the choices these 
       parties make? Islamist Opposition in Authoritarian Regimes
       explores the answers to these questions by studying 
       thepath of the Islamist Party of Justice and Development 
       (PJD) in Moroccofrom 1992 to 2007. Wegner traces the 
       party's choices through an analysis of organizational, 
       ideological, and institutional constraints. Adopting a 
       simple but novel perspective, Wegner distinguishes 
       Islamist parties from other opposition parties because of 
       their connection to a powerful social movement. The author
       shows how the PJD initiallymade majorprogress in electoral
       politics by building up a strong party organization, 
       sustaining full support of the Islamist movement, and 
       positioning itself as the only credible opposition party. 
       Ultimately, the failure of the PJD to win elections was 
       due to political concessions it made to secureits legality
       combined with a distancing from the Islamist movement. 
       Based on extensive field research in Morocco in 2003 and 
       2007 and drawing upon personal interviews with members, 
       candidates, and leaders of the PJD, Islamist Opposition in
       Authoritarian Regimes presents a meticulous and 
       enlightening case study. Wegner enriches our understanding
       of electoral authoritarianism in Morocco and throughout 
       the Arab- Islamic world. -- Book jacket
