Egypt: Politics and Society, 1945-1981
By Derek Hopwood
Allen & Unwin, 1982, 194 pp.

The Dean of St. Antony's College, Oxford, well acquainted with Egypt through scholarship and many visits, writes an introductory, broad-brush survey of the reigns of Nasser and Sadat. A good replacement for earlier general volumes by Tom Little and others, which are now out of date, it is sympathetic, balanced, broad in coverage, bland in presentation.
