Book Launch | Coups and Revolutions: Mass Mobilization, the Egyptian Military, and the United States from Mubarak to Sisi

"Coups and Revolutions masterfully analyzes the waves of revolution and counterrevolution in Egypt between 2011 and 2018. Holmes' analysis rests upon both a close familiarity with events in Egypt and a nuanced deployment of social-scientific theories of coups and revolutions. Her novel concept of 'coup from below' will surely generate much discussion and debate. Read this book to understand why and how a promising revolution was ruthlessly crushed."

---- Jeff Goodwin, Professor of Sociology at New York University
