Overview

The government of Egypt banned Inside Egypt in 2008--the first time a book on Egyptian politics had been banned in the country in decades--and quickly rescinded it after the media firestorm that followed. The book depicts the country before the collapse, and then explores recent events in Egypt and the realization of the predicted revolution. Through interviews with ordinary Egyptians and extensive travels in the country, Bradley reveals why Egypt was vulnerable to a popular uprising and how it could bring about an Iranian-style theocracy in a country once noted for its plurality and tolerance.

Editorial Reviews

The New Yorker

Bradley's books suggests Egypt's rupture had clear omens . . . and was promptly banned by the Mubarak government.
The Christian Science Monitor

This dark and sober look at contemporary Egypt . . . offers a compelling explanation for the anger now being seen on the streets of Cairo.
author of Holy War Inc. and The Osama bin Laden I Peter Bergen

Inside Egypt is an original, angry, brilliant, subtle, and highly readable expose of contemporary Egyptian politics and society.
Robert Baer

Egypt is the next domino to fall and, as they say, so goes Egypt so goes the Middle East. John R. Bradley hits the nail on the head, explaining why a pillar of American dominance in that part of the world is about to crumble.
Kefaya Michael Burleigh

John Bradley's Inside Egypt is an informed and immensely readable addition to this literature
Daily News Egypt Nathan Field

...a must read for anyone interested in Egyptian politics.
