Egypt's 2011 revolution and beyond
"On January 25, 2011, hundreds of thousands of Egyptians took to the streets across the country demanding the fall of Mohamed Hosni Mubarak, who had ruled the country for nearly 30 years. This was only the beginning. More than four years on, الشعب (The People) chronicles how citizens in the Arab world's largest nation fought for social and economic change in the face of a brutal political regime that wanted to maintain the status quo. الشعب takes a step back from the personal narrative. Published in a newspaper format and narrated by 'the people,' El-Tantawy's second publication aims to preserve and celebrate the vanishing memory of one of the most historically relevant chapters in modern-day Egypt's story." In addition to the newspaper, there are two inserts. Text in Arabic.
32 p. ; ill. : 29 x 42 cm. + 2 inserts ; ill. : 18 x 28 cm.
