About this book

Kirk Beattie presents a fresh look at Egyptian politics during the Sadat presidency. Beginning with an examination of the political and economic situation bequeathed by Nasser, he describes Sadat s succession to the presidency and his consolidation of power. His analysis focuses on Sadat s effort to chart a new political and economic path, including the daring October 1973 war, liberalization of Egypt s political economy, the January 1977 food riots, and peace with Israel. Simultaneously, Beattie highlights the important obstacles presented by intra-regime, civilian, and foreign opponents to Sadat s various political and economic development strategies, explaining the factors that led to Sadat s assassination. Based on hundred of interviews with key actors representing diverse political viewpoints, this book provides insight into government and opposition behavior during Sadat s presidency.
