A journalist from the Guardian has written a book on how Egypt’s former rulers managed to win a golden age.
He describes how a group of influential men managed to build a state which was more like a “cooperative society” than the one that ruled Egypt for much of the 20th century.
The book, published by Random House, is titled The Great Game: Egypt’s Grand Game and the Untold Story of the World’s Greatest Democracy, written by David Saperstein.
It is a political thriller, written in the style of a historical novel, with a story that follows the rise of Egyptian democracy, according to its title.
“I have been reading books about Egyptian politics for a long time.
I’ve seen the film of Egypt, watched the documentary series, the BBC programmes on the country.
But the last time I looked, I was not impressed,” Sapersteinsays in the book, which will be released in March.
“Egypt has always been a complex place.
It’s very, very complicated.”
Saperstein writes that the political game was so complex that “the military had a monopoly on the levers of power, including economic power”.
It was in this context that a “group of men in the military, led by Ahmed Shafiq, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, who had been imprisoned in Egypt for more than a decade, decided to create a new order, one that they hoped would be a cooperative society”.
“This was a golden era for Egypt.
This was a time when Egypt had been governed by a system that was more cooperative and less authoritarian than it had been in the past.”
The men of the military “renegotiated” the constitution, allowing it to run longer, more democratically, and with more people on the bench, and they “caught the attention of the world”.
The military was the only institution that could make any lasting change, and the men of power were able to put their plans into effect, according the book.
But the real power was not in the hands of the army, but in the pockets of the “great majority” of Egyptians.
The “great men” of the Brotherhood, and of other Egyptian political figures, used their power to build up the military to the point that the “war between the generals and the great men” began.
In the book’s conclusion, Saperstines his opinion of the generals who came to power after the overthrow of the first democratic government: “They had all been successful at different times and had all made mistakes, but they all had one thing in common: they were good guys.”
What happened in Egypt during the golden age of democracy?
The book describes the early years of the modern Egyptian republic.
In the 1920s, the Muslim Brothers (MB) won power, led a military coup and led a violent crackdown on opponents.
The military was put on the back foot by the opposition, but continued to use the military’s vast power to suppress dissent.
The MB’s military-led government took a number of steps to improve the lives of ordinary Egyptians, but this included the establishment of social welfare schemes and the implementation of labour reforms.
The economy was also liberalised.
In 1929, the Egyptian parliament passed the Workers’ and Soldiers’ Constitution, which was a massive economic overhaul that was intended to boost Egypt’s economy, but it also came at the expense of social services, which were severely underfunded.
“It was a huge change in the country,” Sapersstein says.
“It was the beginning of a period of social unrest that lasted until the 1970s.
This revolution was a political revolution, and it did a lot of good.”
How did Egypt become so corrupt?
The article in the Guardian describes how the MB government introduced labour reforms, but the economic reforms were not enough to make Egypt’s society more equal.
Sapersstein’s description of the Egyptian economy in the 1920 and 1930s are in contrast to that of the current rulers.
“There was a lot more prosperity during the 1930s, but there was also a lot less social welfare and much less social stability,” he says.
“This meant that, instead of the middle class, there was a whole new class of people in the countryside.
“So, in a sense, they were doing everything in their power, and everything they could, to try to get the country back to the middle of the road, and to try and get the middle classes back to working class.””
Sapersstines claims that the military was one of the main causes of the country’s economic decline.””
