Revolution in Egypt and the Arab WorldAdded to the calendar on Friday Aug 19th, 2011 7:15 PM
How did it start? Where is it headed?
Overthrowing President Hosni Mubarak was the easy part. Illusions of the Army as an agent of change have disintegrated. Today the Egyptian people come to grips with the realities of state power and the complex task of formulating a popular consensus for a new democratic and socially equitable Egypt.
Sharat G. Lin spent a week in Tahrir Square, ground zero for the Egyptian Revolution. He discusses the social forces at work, and the regional impact of changes in Egypt.
Dr. Lin is president of the San Jose Peace and Justice Center. He writes on global political economy, the Middle East, labor migration, and public health, and has lived for many years in the Arab World.
