Wafik Moustafa will be talking about his new book, Egypt, A Nation in Crisis. This authoritative commentary on Egyptian affairs casts an eye back over Egypt’s modern history, taking the reader through the landmark events that have formed the modern nation, and brings the reader to a close and impartial understanding of the current political climate in Egypt.
A tireless campaigner for a just and stable system of government in Egypt, Dr Moustafa presents a confident assessment of the crossroads Egypt finds herself at today, and augurs what lies ahead in the immediate future.
“…bracing, sharp and, to many, controversial. He says things that many Arab politicians and opinion-makers would rather not hear said… His criticisms of modern Egypt, a country he still holds dear for all its current difficulties, are those that any politician ought to heed.” – Michael Binyon of The Times
