A poignant, deeply human portrait of Egypt during the Arab Spring,
told through the lives of individuals A FINANCIAL TIMES AND AN
ECONOMIST BOOK OF THE YEAR 'This will be the must read on the
destruction of Egypt's revolution and democratic moment' Sarah Leah
Whitson, Middle East director of Human Rights Watch 'Sweeping,
passionate ... An essential work of reportage for our time' Philip
Gourevitch, author of We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will
Be Killed with Our Families In 2011, Egyptians of all sects, ages
and social classes shook off millennia of autocracy, then elected a
Muslim Brother as president. New York Times correspondent David D.
Kirkpatrick arrived in Egypt with his family less than six months
before the uprising first broke out in 2011. As revolution and
violence engulfed the country, he lived through Cairo's hopes and
disappointments alongside the diverse population of his new city.
Into the Hands of the Soldiers is a heartbreaking story with a
simple message: the failings of decades of autocratic rule are the
reason for the chaos we see across the Arab world. Understanding
the story of what happened in those years can help readers make
sense of everything taking place across the region today - from the
terrorist attacks in North Sinai to the bedlam in Syria and Libya.
