The government of Egypt banned Inside Egypt in 2008-the first time a book on Egyptian politics had been banned in the country in decades-but quickly rescinded the ban after the international media firestorm that followed. The book depicts a country on the brink of collapse. Through interviews with ordinary Egyptians and extensive travels in the country, Bradley reveals why Egypt is now vulnerable to another popular uprising that could bring about an Iranian-style theocracy in a country once noted for its plurality and tolerance.
