    Definitely needs to be updates, since it ends in the closing months of the 2011 Revolution and doesn't look much at Morsi or Sisi. Would love to read more about those years.

    Egypt clearly has an adventurous post-colonial history, directed exclusively by military-backed, dictatorial coups from Nasser to Sadat and Mubarak, and transition to civilian dictators like Mohammed Morsi. By providing a biography of each of these dictators, Osman traces Egypt's path from Arab nationalism to the seemingly mutually exclusive counterpart (Islamism), from predominantly Christian since the dawn of time to predominantly Muslim from the 16th century onward, and from Nasserite sociali Egypt clearly has an adventurous post-colonial history, directed exclusively by military-backed, dictatorial coups from Nasser to Sadat and Mubarak, and transition to civilian dictators like Mohammed Morsi. By providing a biography of each of these dictators, Osman traces Egypt's path from Arab nationalism to the seemingly mutually exclusive counterpart (Islamism), from predominantly Christian since the dawn of time to predominantly Muslim from the 16th century onward, and from Nasserite socialism to Western-friendly-but-corruption-rife capitalism. One of the more insightful parts of this book is its history of the Muslim Brotherhood as a transnational, democratic Islamic movement and its provision of healthcare, education, and humanitarian services at a time when were suffering en masse from poor governance. This book is not updated to Egypt's 2013 coup that brought in its current president, el-Sisi, but does lucidly explain Egypt's multifaceted socio-cultural changes up until then.
