Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Explores the usually ignored role of labor in the unfolding political economy of Egypt after the 1952 coup took control from the British puppet monarchy. Focuses centrally on how labor has been both an important basis of support and legitimacy for Egypt's authoritarian regimes and a force for challenging the government and restricting its prerogatives, especially since the early 1970s when presidents Sadat and Mubarak tried to impose economic liberalization.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Surveys the relationships of workers and trade unions to the state in Egypt, bringing to light the often overlooked effect of workers' collective actions in shaping public policy.
