Egypt is almost the size of Britain, France, and Germany combined, yet its nearly 70 million people are forced by geographic factors to live in an area no bigger than Belgium. Only four percent of the land can sustain cultivation and life. In this illuminating book, the authors describe the myriad problems facing Egypt. They look food scarcity, the effects of water and land shortage, the impact of globalization on Egypt's attempts to industrialize, population explosion, massive debt, unemployment, corruption, and Egypt's tourism industry, which is especially vulnerable to Islamist terrorism.

"very useful and remarkably up-to-date textbook... It certainly fills a gap in the...literature on the geography of North Africa and the Middle East...excellent textbook." -Keith Sutton, Manchester University "A comprehensive and informative synopsis of the economic and social issues of a crucial country within the Arabic world (...) which deserves to be read as widely as possible." -Eckart Ehlers, Erdkunde: German Geographical Journal (translated from German)
