New book on Egypt, "Egypt between democracy and Islamism"

Another new book about Egypt in the twilight of the Mubarak era has come out:


"L'Egypte entre démocratie et islamisme : Le système Moubarak à l'heure de la succession" (Jean-Noël Ferrié)



I haven't gotten a chance to read it yet, but from the blurb it looks at how the "Mubarak system" works and its success in preventing a much-anticipated social explosion. For a look a Ferrié's approach to Egypt, see this article [PDF], from November 2006.
