Abstract or Description

This book is about social movements in Egypt and Iran. It analyses sectors of the reform movement in Iran and the groups and organisations that have formed the basis of the Egyptian opposition movement since the early 1990s in their historical contexts. It argues that movements seen on the streets of the region in the early 21st century have not arisen out of a vacuum. Indeed they represent the culmination of over twenty years of mobilisation by social movements. This mobilisation is itself part of a history of struggle in the region that dates back over a century.
