Egypt post the revolution – Egypt after the January uprising – how much has changed and just what is likely to happen in the upcoming parliamentary election?

Democracy in Egypt (2011) – The Egyptian revolution came not from the intellectual elite or opposition parties, but via Facebook and the Twitterverse, from the young men and women of Egypt fed up with autocratic, geriatric rule. Nor are they interested in a theocracy. Does this mean we’ve seen the end of an era which began with the Iranian Islamic Revolution of 1979?

Who will govern Egypt? (2010) – As the intellectual crucible of middle eastern thought, Egypt remains enormously influential. What happens in Egypt when Hosni Mubarak dies will have global ramifications. The Muslim Brotherhood, the chief of intelligence, high up military men, and Gamal Mubarak, Hosni’s son, are all jostling for power.
