Product description


This will be the must read on the destruction of Egypt's revolution and democratic moment (Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director of Human Rights Watch)

With this sweeping, passionate, street-level chronicle of Egypt's years of hopeful popular uprising and crushing betrayal by the entrenched forces of corruption and violence, and by Washington's cynical complicity, David D. Kirkpatrick gives us an essential work of reportage for our time (Philip Gourevitch, author of 'We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families')

David D. Kirkpatrick landed in Cairo as the New York Times bureau chief on the eve of revolution. Into the Hands of the Soldiers is his gripping narrative of the tumultuous years that followed, in which he was often in the eye of the storm. Observant, eloquent and empathetic, he's the perfect guide to the perplexing and sometimes heartbreaking events that snuffed out the democratic hopes of the Arab Spring. This is the rare non-fiction book that's as entertaining as it is informative (James B. Stewart, author of 'Tangled Webs' and 'Heart of a Soldier')

With compelling anecdotes, David D. Kirkpatrick walks us through the labyrinth of Egyptian politics, military rule, the quixotic judicial system and grassroots feminism. This book is both astute and insightful, and often as comical as it is tragic (Lynsey Addario, author of 'It’s What I Do')

This fast-paced account of upheaval in the Arab world reflects the depth of understanding that can only come from ground-level reporting. Kirkpatrick watched a historic popular uprising unfold. In this book, he brings the story to vivid life through the eyes of both the poor and the powerful (Stephen Kinzer, author of 'All the Shah’s Men')

A twenty-first-century successor to William L. Shire's Berlin Diary: a first-rate reporter's riveting eyewitness account of the unfolding of a world-historical tragedy. Kirkpatrick has an uncanny ability to lend a sense of real-time suspense to events in the recent past, and to get to the truth of a dauntingly elusive story (Nicholas Lemann, author of 'The Promised Land')
