The Battle for Egypt

ebook
In a series of riveting dispatches, Cairo native Yasmine El Rashidi provides an eyewitness account of the entire 2011 Egyptian Revolution as it unfolded, from its origins in the days leading up to the first January 25 protest in Tahrir Square through the violent confrontations with the regime and the fall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, to the subsequent military takeover and the March 2011 constitutional referendum. Drawing on her deep knowledge of the Egyptian capital and its underlying social divisions, El Rashidi brings together a vivid story of the uprising itself with subtle insights about the strengths--and limits--of the protest movement and the prospects for large-scale political change in the September 2011 parliamentary elections.With a preface by the Oxford scholar of revolutions Timothy Garton Ash.

The Battle for Egypt is available as an e-book only. There is no print edition of this book.
