"This superbly written book documents the great victories - and terrible setbacks - of a people thirsting for democracy and social justice" (Owen Jones on The Egyptians)

"I started reading this and couldn't stop. A remarkable piece of work and very revealing" (Noam Chomsky on The Egyptians)

"The deepest and most comprehensive account of Egypt's revolution in the English language" (Paul Mason on The Egyptians)

"Jack Shenker cuts through the complacent clichés and self-flattering illusions of foreign correspondents and experts to produce an intimate and comprehensive portrait of contemporary Egypt, which is as historically informed as it is politically shrewd" (Pankaj Mishra on The Egyptians)

Jack Shenker is an award-winning reporter on radical politics and protest whose work has twice been shortlisted for the Orwell Prize. In his mid-twenties he was appointed Egypt correspondent for the Guardian for his coverage of the 2011 revolution and Arab Spring. This led to his first book, The Egyptians: A Radical Story (Allen Lane, 2016). His journalism has been translated into several languages and has covered Gaza, Africa, Central Asia and the United States, as well as Britain and Europe. As well as for the Guardian, he writes regularly for a wide range of publications, including Granta, the New York Times and London Review of Books. He is based in London.
