More About This Textbook

Overview

The challenge of survival for six million Christians.

Saturday Review calls A Lonely Minority "A highly readable and urbanely authoritative account of the Coptic community of Egypt. Based on extensive research and travel, this sympathetic, but objective book portrays the struggle for survival by millions of Christians who take pride in being the 'original Egyptians.' The milestone account is as relevant today as ever."

Author Biography: Edward Wakin, Ph.D., a widely published author of magazine articles and books on social and religious issues, was a prize-winning journalist before joining the Fordham University faculty as professor of communications. He has traveled throughout the world as a journalist and as a lecturer. His books range from the immigrant experience to the impact of television and profiles of Middle Eastern leaders.
