Egypt on the Brink

From Nasser to the Muslim Brotherhood

Explores what has happened to the biggest Arab nation since President Nasser took control of the country in 1954. This edition takes events up to summer 2013, looking at how Egypt has become increasingly divided under its new Islamist government.


Tarek Osman is an Egyptian political economist with fifteen years' experience in strategy consulting, private equity, and political-economy advisory. He writes for several international publications and frequently comments on Egypt and the Arab world for think tanks and news media.

"'Tarek Osman, a Western-educated Egyptian banker and occasional columnist, brings the eye of an intelligent amateur to the story of this country's past half century. He writes with feeling, backed up by an impressively broad list of sources as well as sharp critical insight and astute judgement.' (The Economist) 'Osman writes with a focused and uncluttered style which will retain the interest of even the most general reader.' (Joyce Tyldesley, Financial Times) 'Full marks to Tarek Osman and Yale University Press for the bull's eye title of Egypt on the Brink.' (Boyd Tonkin, The Independent) 'A well researched and closely argued book.' (John R. Bradley, Literary Review) 'Osman paints a colourful and convincing picture of the decline of Mubarak's rule... A compelling account of how the various combustile ingredients of revolution came together, awaiting the final spark.' (Gerald Butt, Times Literary Supplement) 'Osman, a native Egyptian, brings considerable insight to his country's problems and analyses the changes that have occurred... This book is an excellent guide to what ought to be the leading Arab state.' (North and South)"
