Labor and the state in Egypt :workers, unions, and economic restructuringby Marsha Pripstein Posusney
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)
