A Look Inside
Main Description
The 18-day revolt that ended Hosni Mubarak¿s 30 years of rule marked a historic turning point in the political fortunes not only of Egypt, but of the entire Middle East. While the impact of that seminal event will continue to unfold for years, this volume, written by members of the Department of Political Science at the American University in Cairo, presents a timely and authoritative exploration of the circumstances and implications¿both political and theoretical¿that surrounded what has come to be known as the Tahrir Revolution. The authors¿ balanced scholarly analysis illuminates much about the practical meaning of the revolution for Egyptians, other regional actors, and students of political science in the broadest sense.
