About this Item

Oblong quarto. 160pp. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over paper covered boards, with silver lettering on spine and front cover. Profusely illustrated throughout with over 200 color and b/w photographic reproductions, "Egyptian Freedom Story" is a definitive, absorbing account of the 2011 Egyptian revolution. Co-written by Samy Al Tobgy, the chairman and founder of Mediaworx, and Mohamed Fadel Fahmy*, a TV producer/journalist specialized in covering the Middle East, both men witnessed firsthand Mubarak's demise and the country's efforts to build a democracy. The Egyptian Revolution of 2011, locally known as the January 25th Revolution was a movement following a popular uprising which began on January 25th, 2011. It consisted of demonstrations, marches, plaza occupations, riots, non-violent civil resistance, acts of civil disobedience and strikes. With no apparent leadership, millions of pro-democracy protesters from Cairo, Alexandria and Suez took to the streets demanding the fall of the Mubarak regime. "Echoes of the demands resonated throughout Egypt: "The people want to topple the regime". Dignity, freedom, and social justice were some of the demands that millions voiced in the early days of the revolution as a result of 30 years of dictatorship, injustice and prosecution. After 18-days of continuous demonstrations, former president Hosni Mubarak stepped down. "Egyptian Freedom Story" gives a new meaning to the phrase: "A picture is worth a thousand words". Over 200 photos taken by professional Egyptian photographers during the unrest, uprising and ultimately the revolution that has paved the way toward a "New Egypt". "Revolutions don't happen overnight" summarizes the introduction of each chapter of this photo of this photo documentary. The visual flashback; How did the Egyptians break away from Hosni Mubarak's stronghold on January 25th on Tuesday in Tahrir Square? How did the nation survive the government's orchestrated horror on January 28 with no internet or mobile phone communication, as they faced Mubarak's Central Security Forces, State Security and the Egyptian Intelligence? How did the revolutionaries sustain 18-days in the open protesting in Tahrir Square until Mubarak stepped down on February 11th? How did the Muslims, Christians, political parties, activists and all the liberated Egyptians make way toward the referendum deciding their future under the rule of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces? An explosion of brilliant political art emerged during the Egyptian revolution. Egypt's painters, poets, writers, musicians and street-artists openly presented the nation's political issues in one form or another - a sign of the true democratic experience Egyptians are living today" (From the publishers). The first five chapters document the events from the start of the Revolution on January 25th, to March 19th, 2011, the day on which the constitutional referendum was held throughout Egypt and which saw more than 14 million voters (77%) in favor of a new constitution, while around 4 million (23%) opposed the changes. The 6th and last chapter is dedicated to the Art of the Revolution and reproduces drawings and posters made during this tumultuous time. Moderate creasing and sporadic rubbing along edges of dust-jacket. Text and captions in Arabic and English. DJ and binding in overall good, interior in very good condition. * On June 21, 2014, a judge in Egypt convicted Mohamed Fadel Fahmy, along with two other journalists, Peter Greste, and Baher Mohamed of conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood and sentenced them to seven years in prison. All three were working for Al-Jazeera when they were arrested six months ago, but have a wide range of professional experience, including stints with CNN, The New York Times, and the BBC. The trial was widely dismissed by Western officials and rights groups as a sham and a threat to press freedoms. Bookseller Inventory # 38197
