Egypt after Mubarak:
Liberalism, Islam, and Democracy in the Arab World
Bruce K. Rutherford
With a new introduction by the author

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"An important work, filled with valuable information and insight. Beyond the rich detail about Egypt, Rutherford's study deepens our understanding of how the characteristics of both an authoritarian and a democratic political order come together and persist in the hybrid regimes of the Arab world."--Mark Tessler, University of Michigan

"Bruce Rutherford helps us make sense of the voices emerging in Egyptian politics and understand how they resonate. Neither denying Egyptian authoritarianism nor accepting its inevitability, Rutherford draws deeply on theoretical debates among scholars to elucidate politics in this vital--and surprisingly complicated--country."--Nathan J. Brown, author of The Rule of Law in the Arab World

"Egypt after Mubarak offers a unique look at Egypt's most promising and most hopeful future. Rutherford argues that the major oppositional forces are converging on a platform of reform that will produce in Egypt a hybrid regime with liberal but circumscribed democratic characteristics. This book will have a serious and productive impact on the field."--Raymond W. Baker, Trinity College

"This book provides a superb analysis of the domestic constituencies and agendas for political reform in Egypt, highlighting their distinctive features and their common ground. Rutherford accomplishes this with a high degree of analytic sophistication, and backs it with rich supporting evidence. This book makes a significant contribution to our understanding of contemporary Egyptian politics and society by deftly identifying--and capturing the nuances of--the alternate political visions in Egypt."--Carrie Rosefsky Wickham, Emory University
