CCT Professor Adel Iskandar releases new book

Posted in News

Let’s all congratulate Prof. Adel Iskandar in celebrating the release of his new book Egypt In Flux: Essays on an Unfinished Revolution which is being published by the American University in Cairo Press and Oxford University Press in April.

Egypt in Flux is a collection of essays on the political, social, economic, and cultural dimensions of change in the country’s ongoing revolutionary current. From discussions about the illusion of fair and free elections, social inequities, and labor disparity to examinations of religion, sports, literature, and sexuality, the essays in this valuable and intellectually stimulating volume chart both the broad lines and the nuances of an unfinished revolution.

Additionally, Professor Iskandar had another edited book published last week. Mediating the Arab Uprisings is the first volume of its kind on pressing topics, such as the tribulations of covering Syria, the contextualization and demythologizing of Facebook activism, the New York Times’ reporting rituals on Palestine, etc. Mediating the Arab Uprisings is a primer for the curious reader, a pedagogical tool for media studies and communication, and a provocative collection for the seasoned scholar.

Beyond this, Prof. Iskandar also published a chapter entitled “Muslim, Christian–One Hand!” in the book Demanding Dignity: Young Voices from the Front Lines of the Arab Revolutions which Cornel West described as a “A powerful–and disturbing book–Dont miss it!”
