Item description for Whatever Else Happened to the Egyptians?: From the Revolution to the Age of Globalization by Amin Galal, David Wilmsen & Samir Abd al-Ghani...

At the time of the Egyptian Revolution in 1952, the population of Egypt was around 22 million. At the end of 2002, it stood at 69 million, and was growing at a rate of 1.33 million a year. What happens to a society that grows so quickly, when the habitable and cultivable land of the country is strictly limited? After the success of Whatever Happened to the Egyptians?, Galal Amin now takes a further bemused look at the changes that have taken place in Egyptian society over the past half century, this time considering the disruptions brought about by the surge in population. Basing his arguments on both academic research and his own personal experiences and impressions, and employing the same light humor and keen sense of empathy as in his earlier work, the author discusses how runaway population growth has not only profound effects on many aspects of society - from love and fashion to telephones, the supermarket, and religion - but also predictable effects on the economy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Whatever Else Happened to the Egyptians?: From the Revolution to the Age of Globalization?

Great Book  Mar 30, 2007
One would think the open doors policy was the only reason for the downslope of Egypt and Egyptians, but there is much talk about Social Mobility. I found it very hard to put the book down, the chapters are short, his writing style very interesting and his sarcastic yet 'true' opinion on society. What I found interesting about the book was the 'familiarity' of his chapter. For an Egyptian, one can completely agree with him when he talks about Cinemas, Weddings and Summer Vacationing. This book will put together your idea of how Egyptians 'are'. I enjoyed this book very much and it is good for Egyptians who are interested in knowing "What happened to us?" or anyone studying politics, education and Economy in Egypt.
Joyful to read for Amin  Jan 23, 2007
This book, as well as "Whatever Happened to the Egyptians" inform, very entertainingly, about the dramatic Social and Economical changes that has taken place in Egypt since Nasser's era. They also show how the Egyptian society in some situations has been blindly moving in the direction of westernization. The book is divided into different articles, addressing different aspects of the society, eg. income, marriage, etc..., which makes it very easy and more interesting to read.
I was one of Galal Amin's students in the American University in Cairo, and his very charming personality that always made his classes a joy to learn, vividly appears in his writings.
