The book focuses on the Egyptian press since Egyptian newspapers and magazines deserve study because of their large readership. Written in Cairo, the author offers an in depth analysis of the state of various press systems in Egypt. It qualitatively and quantitatively examines the press's framing of three regional crises: Israel's War on Lebanon in July 2006, sinking of Al-Salam 98 ferry in February 2006, and the protest by Sudanese refugees in Cairo in December 2005.

An Egyptian-American journalist living in Egypt witnessed firsthand Hosni Mubarak's fall and Mohamed Morsi's struggle to stay in power. In these pages, he offers a chronicle of, and a revealing look at, the 2011 Egyptian Revolution and its aftermath, and he explains for Americans the confrontation between Islamists and seculars. The author examines how Egyptians have received the 2011 Egyptian Revolution and its progress in the two years that followed Hosni Mubarak's demise, from the moment the revolution erupted on January 25 to late in February of 2013 when protests calling for the downfall of President Mohamed Morsi were mounted in various major Egyptian cities. Since Egypt under Mubarak was America's stalwart ally in the Arab world, throughout the book the text also touches on American-Egyptian relations and whether Egyptians can achieve their dream of establishing a stable democratic state without U.S. economic assistance or 'U.S. meddling' in their country's internal affairs. The material also offers insights to help interpret events unfolding elsewhere in the Middle East and assessing U.S. involvement. While there are other books out there on the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, none of them inclusively covers its aftermath -- two years of events. Furthermore, the author wrote this in-depth work while in Egypt, offering not only the media's opinion on the issue but also conducting many interviews with ordinary Egyptians.

Media, Revolution, and Politics in Egypt: The Story of an Uprising chronicles the political and media dynamic in pre- and post-revolution Egypt and what it could mean for the country's hoped-for democratic transition. Against the backdrop of a resurrected police state, rights gained through revolution have whittled away. With a polarised body politic, the facts have become amorphous as various ideological trends cling to their own narratives of truth, making national reconciliation more challenging than ever. 'This is a careful account of journalism's roller coaster in the course of a decade in Egypt, by a writer, fully engaged with the country's politics and culture and its struggle for a civil society. It is rigorously detailed and sourced, and breathes the air of liberation. Abdalla Hassan has shown, uniquely well, the forces at play in Egyptian society and the result is a most valuable testament.' John Lloyd

The Dawn of the Arab Uprising sheds light on the historical background and initial impact of the mass uprisings which have shaken the Arab world since December 2010. The book brings together the best writers from the online journal Jadaliyya, which has established itself as an unparalleled source of information and critical analysis on the Middle East. The authors, many of whom live in the countries affected, provide unique understanding and first-hand accounts of events that have received superficial and partial coverage in Western and Arab media alike. While the book focuses on those states that have been most affected by the uprisings it also covers the impact on Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Palestine, and Iraq. The Dawn of the Arab Uprising covers the full range of issues involved in these historic events, from political economy and the role of social media, to international politics, gender, labor, and the impact on culture, making this the ideal one-stop introduction to the events for the novice and specialist alike.

Inside Inequality in the Arab Republic of Egypt: Facts and Perceptions Across People, Time, and Space comprises four papers prepared in the framework of the Egypt inequality study financed by the World Bank. The first paper, by Sherine Al-Shawarby, reviews the studies on inequality in Egypt since the 1950s with the double objective of illustrating the importance attributed to inequality through time and of presenting and comparing the main published statistics on inequality. The second paper, by Branko Milanovic, turns to the global and spatial dimensions of inequality. The Egyptian society remains deeply divided across space and in terms of welfare, and this study unveils some of the hidden features of this inequality. The third paper, by Paolo Verme, studies facts and perceptions of inequality during the 2000-2009 period, which preceded the Egyptian revolution. The fourth paper, by Sahar El Tawila, May Gadallah, and Enas Ali A.El-Majeed, assesses the state of poverty and inequality among the poorest villages of Egypt. The paper attempts to explain the level of inequality in an effort to disentangle those factors that derive from household abilities from those factors that derive from local opportunities. Inside Inequality in the Arab Republic of Egypt provides some initial elements that could explain the apparent mismatch between inequality measured with household surveys and inequality aversion measured by values surveys. This is a particularly important and timely topic to address in light of the unfolding developments in the Arab region. The book should be of interest to any observer of the political and economic evolution of the Arab region in the past few years and to poverty and inequality specialists interested in a deeper understanding of the distribution of incomes in Egypt and other countries in the Middle East and North Africa region.

Within the Middle East, the Camp David Accords are the subject of great debate. Many in the Arab world, and even some in Israel, regard them with hostility. Others, especially in the United States, see in the Camp David formula the only hope for successful resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict and lavish praise on the accords. But the broad impact of the accords on the Middle East and on the prospects for peace has never been fully analyzed by Middle Eastern or American specialists. This new work, published to mark the tenth anniversary of the accords, offers the comprehensive assessment necessary to discuss the next steps in the Middle East peace process. Now more than ever Americans need to understand how the Camp David Accords affected the entire Middle East region—not just Egypt and Israel—to deal with the complexities of future peace efforts. The authors provide an analytical basis for understanding the intricate links among domestic political forces, regional politics, and superpower policies as elements in the Arab-Israel peace process. By examining the past, the authors also show how to clarify choices that may confront Israelis and Arabs as they continue to work toward a settlement of their longstanding dispute.
