The young people who so bravely occupied Tahrir Square and got rid of a dictator have set and example that’s reverberating around the world. At OR Books we’re delighted to be publishing, at the breakneck speed our model allows, a book that describes how they did it in their own words, all from Twitter. There’s never been a book quite like it before. With its staccato delivery and multiple viewpoints, it captures the drama and emotion of the protests with great vividness. This is history in the making, exhilaratingly alive on the page.
We’re thrilled to be working with a new kind of way to chronicle history, one that follows Egypt’s revolution as it unfolded — in the words of the people who made it. Read more about it on Galleycat.
