Liberation Square Summary
In early 2011, the world's attention was riveted on Cairo, where after three decades of supremacy, Hosni Mubarak was driven from power in a revolution that was as swift as it was explosive. For eighteen days, chaos and defiance reigned in the streets as protestors of all ages united toward the common goal of liberation. But the revolution was more than a spontaneous uprising. It was the end result of years of mounting tension. As a journalist based in Cairo, Ashraf Khalil was an eyewitness to the perfect storm that brought Mubarak down. An Egyptian- American who moved to Cairo in 1997, Khalil was subjected to teargas alongside protestors in Tahrir Square, observed and experienced incredible violence, and reported on the day-today developments from the frontlines. From the halls of power to the back alleys of Cairo, he has the kind of access few can match. Complete with coverage of the forthcoming Egyptian elections, "Liberation Square" is a revealing and dramatic look at the revolution that transformed the modern history of one of the world's oldest civilizations.
