The Journey to Tahrir: Revolution, Protest and Social Change in Egypt, 1999 - 2011

by Jeannie Sowers and Chris Toensing (Editors)
£19.99   paperback  Verso Books (2012)

The Journey to Tahrir: Revolution, Protest and Social Change in Egypt, 1999 - 2011 by Jeannie Sowers and Chris Toensing (Editors) Leading analysts of Egypt on repression, dissent and the dramatic revolution.
 
The toppling of Hosni Mubarak marked the beginning of a revolutionary restructuring of Egypt's political and social order. Jeannie Sowers and Chris Toensing bring together updated essays from Middle East Report the premier journal covering the region that offer unrivaled analysis of the major social and political trends that underpinned these tumultuous events.
 
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 examine 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.
