Political Life in Cairo’s New Quarters
by Salwa Ismail, 2006
Since the 1970s, Cairo has experienced tremendous growth and change. Salwa Ismail examines the effects of these changes in Political Life in Cairo’s New Quarters. Rich in ethnographic detail, this work reveals the city’s new urban quarters as sites not only of opposition, but also under governmental surveillance, situating the everyday within the context of developments in Cairo.
