Tahrir Square: The Heart of the Egyptian Revolution

by Mia Gröndahl (photographer), Foreword by Ayman Mohyeldin - £18.95  The American University in Cairo Press (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9789774165115 | ISBN 10: 977416511x

A visual celebration of the spirit of Tahrir.
When Egyptians began demonstrating against the regime of President Hosni Mubarak on 25 January 2011, few could anticipate that the demonstrations would grow into a revolution to astonish the world. Millions of Egyptians were soon joining in every day in cities across the country, but Tahrir Square became the beating heart of the revolution, its center, its life force, and its spirit, a spirit that was peaceful, inclusive, creative, and determined.
Swedish photographer Mia Gröndahl returned day after day to the square, to record the incredible tent city within a city that would not budge until the president did, and to capture the great humanity of the revolution that impressed Cairo, Egypt, and the world. This book presents a selection of Mia’s moving photographs from those historic days, along with the testimony in words of some of the people who were there.
