Adel Iskandar, author of ‘Egypt in Flux: Essays on an Unfinished Revolution’

In his new book “Egypt in Flux: Essays on an unfinished Revolution”, Adel Iskandar chronicles nearly three tumultuous years, looking at the revolution in Egypt from a vast range of perspectives.

As Mohammed Morsi prepares to stand trial, Adel Iskandar gives us his thoughts on the former president’s short stint in office. He tells us why he believes Morsi’s failure was inevitable, and why his entanglement with the Muslim Brotherhood prevents him from being president of all Egyptians.
