Revolutionary Justice

Special Courts and the Formation of Republican Egypt

Yoram Meital

  • The first comprehensive study on the role of special tribunals and the justice system in the making of republican Egypt
  • Sheds light on the political crisis between the new Egyptian regime and the the Muslim Brothers in the aftermath of the 1952 revolution
  • Highlights the dialogue on democracy and social justice in Egyptian courtrooms, contrasting the widespread conception that the Muslim world is inherently undemocratic and its religions and cultures inimical to liberal values
