Apparently the Egyptian authorities have banned a recently published book entitled "Inside Egypt: the Land of the Pharaos on the Brinkof a Revolution." I don't know anything about the book. But when is the government going to realize that (as this very post attests) there is nothing they can do to give a book better publicity and a higher circulation than ban it?
