Whatever Happened to the Egyptian Revolution?—a question on many people’s minds as the country seems more divided than ever, and one that economist and social critic Galal Amin addresses in his book of that name (page 6). Another commentator with strong opinions on the recent fate of Egypt, Adel Iskandar, gives his take in a collection of acerbic essays on Egypt in Flux (page 2). And looking at Copts at the Crossroads (page 12), political scientist Mariz Tadros brings us up to date on the dilemmas facing the country’s Christian community in a changing Egypt.
