Description

A collection of essays, written over a period of 15 years, that provide perspectives on the political, religious, economic, and social issues of contemporary Egypt. Written over a period of 15 years, the essays cover a range of topics including civil society and the prospects for democratization in Egypt and the region, the urban sociology of Cairo, the development of Egypt's landed in Eygpt: the formation, membership, activities of activist groups and their philosophies, political and social roles, and ideological relations with the West.
