Revolution and Counter-revolution in Egypt: Debating Gramsci on Tahrir

Review of African Political Economy

Following a lively debate at a PSA roundtable on Brecht De Smet’s Gramsci on Tahrir, we decided to publish the conference proceedings as a symposium. This collection brings together contributions from Anne Alexander & Sameh Naguib, Roberto Roccu, Sara Salem and myself, and includes a rejoinder by Brecht De Smet.
