New Book: More Political Scientists Weigh In
It’s not just any political scientists who have weighed in on the revolution in this new book, but ones at the American University in Cairo, where they had ringside seats and were, in some cases, participants.
Egypt’s Tahrir Revolution – not, alas, an inspiring title (or book cover, for that matter) was edited by my former colleague Dan Tschirgi, with his colleagues Walid Kazziha and Sean F.McMahon, all political scientist professors at the American University in Cairo.
It’s due out in December, and I may have more to say about it after I’ve read it. It’s on my Amazon wish list.
In the meantime, here are the contents and authors:
