獲獎記者及埃及專家Jack Shenker精彩紀實動盪不安的埃及革命與變遷故事

由知名獲獎記者Jack Shenker透過精彩寫實的敘述,闡述2011年發生於開羅解放廣場轟動全球的埃及革命事件。Jack Shenker在開羅居住超過3年,這段時間他認識了許多革命者,透過最真實的採訪及經歷,記錄人們為了自由與平權而爭取,戰火紛飛的開羅,人們尋求的不是革命,而是團結一心推翻獨裁政權。成功推翻穆巴拉克政權後的埃及,人們也主動發起各種運動,包括長久不平等的性別規範、找回工作主權、文化生產者以不同的力量抵制西方政權的壓迫。埃及革命掀起全球革命熱潮,為期18天的示威活動,不僅在埃及歷史留下深遠的印象,也在世界各個角落掀起熱議,縱使歷經5年,國際媒體仍在持續關注埃及大大小小的抗爭行動。 

'I started reading this and couldn't stop. It's a remarkable piece of work, and very revealing. A stirring rendition of a people's revolution'- Noam Chomsky

'The deepest and most comprehensive account of Egypt's revolution in the English language' - Paul Mason

Egypt is a nation in turmoil, caught in a cycle of revolution and counter-revolution. In The Egyptians: A Radical Story, Jack Shenker uncovers the historical roots of today's unrest and reveals a land divided between two irreconcilable political orders: authoritarian power and grassroots resistance. Challenging conventional analyses that focus only on the battle between Islamists and secular forces, he travels the Arab World's most populous country to explore other, far more important fault lines - the communities waging war against transnational corporations, the people subverting long-established gender norms, the workers seizing control of their factories, and the novelists, graffiti artists and back-alley DJs defying their repressive regime.

Showing that the revolution was no isolated episode but rather part of an ongoing struggle against state authority and economic exclusion, Shenker explains why recent events are so threatening to elites both inside Egypt and abroad. While Egyptian rulers seek to eliminate dissent, seeded within the politics of the young generation are forms of democracy, social justice and resistance that could yet change the world.
