New Developments in Egypt
uprisings in the Middle East, particularly in Egypt. There have been a lot of developments on the ground there, most of which (not shockingly) have not been covered particularly well by the media. Our guest on that first show, Hesham Sallam, has a great write-up on what's going on right now. Hesham is a friend and colleague who is a PhD candidate at Georgetown, studies the persistence of authoritarian regimes, comparative Middle East politics, and is the co-editor of Jadaliyya, and online e-zine produced by the Arab Studies Institute. Give it a read on Jadaliya by clicking here.
