Editorial Reviews


'Combines passion, scholarship and vision - a focused snapshot of this troubled moment in Egypt's history with a competent resume of how we got here. Its passion, clarity of thought and its vision should be an important contribution to the change we Egyptians know we have to make happen.' - Ahdaf Soueif 'Egypt is often referred to in the Western media as "a moderate Arab state" solely on the grounds of its friendly relations with the United States and Israel. But there is nothing moderate about its poverty, corruption, and political repression, as this book so ably demonstrates. Egypt: The Moment of Change is a valuable contribution to understanding the uncertain predicament of this important country.' - Talal Asad, City University of New York, Graduate Center 'The Editors produced an excellent and needed work, on that will certainly fill a void in the literature. In highlighting the basic issues in a straightforward manner and bringing these distinguished scholars together under one cover while at the same time, keeping their aims and discourse clear throughout the text, all involved in this project deserve our appreciation. This is one of the most up to date, critical, but academic, and well balanced work on today's Egypt. For anyone and everyone interested in Egyptian or Middle Eastern politics and society, this is the book to read.' - Tareq Ismael, Professor of Political Science, University of Calgary

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By selim on February 24, 2011
Format: Paperback
Social scientists are not prophets, and this book was not a prophecy, but it attests to the powers of grounded theoretical engagement. Editor Rabab Al-Mahdi was one of the leading members of Enough! [Kifaya] group which started 3-4 years before first cycle of protests demanding the end of Mobarak regime (which was followed by labor strikes). Kifaya, as many commentators argue, made possible a new political language emerge within which different sides of Egyptian spectrum can participate. To confess, when I read this book at December 2010 I found it too optimist. But writers, many of them activists on the ground, were able to see the paradoxes of the unbearable conditions, new opportunities, neoliberal tyranny and political stasis. Book carefully elaborates on the elements/points of possible anti-government mobilization (in a rather neo-Gramscian way).

Rabab Al-Mahdi was very active in the revolution and talked to Al Jazeera many times during the process. Minutes after Mubarak's resignation, she was asked her opinion: she was not able to talk, crying from happiness. Humanities do matter as you can see, they help revolutions be!

Li-taish al-thawra al-masriyya al-kubra! Long live the great Egyptian revolution!
