Synopsis

The toppling of Hosni Mubarak marked the beginning of a revolutionary restructuring of Egypt's political and social order. Jeannie Sowers, an editor of Middle East Report - the premier journal covering the region - brings together updated essays that offer unrivalled analysis of the transformation. Starting with the momentous eighteen days of street protest that compelled Mubarak's resignation, the volume moves back in time to plumb the state's strategies of repression and the mounting dissent of workers, democracy advocates, anti-war activists, and social and environmental campaigners. Leading analysts of Egypt detail the demographic and economic trends that produced wealth for the few and impoverishment for the many. The collection brings clear-headed, first-hand understanding to bear on a moment of intense hope and uncertainty in the Arab world's most populous nation.

JEANNIE SOWERS is Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of New Hampshire. Her research focuses on the intersection of politics and the environment in the Middle East and Egypt in particular.
