For many, particularly on the left, the Arab Uprising — the term often used for these revolutionary waves — was not wishful thinking about the possibility of a permanent revolution. Rather, it signified a real possibility of a transition from political to social emancipation by popular mass movements.
In reality, however, these mass uprisings have led to either devastating civil wars or the restoration of the old ruling classes. In the case of Egypt, the counter-revolution ofwhich vanished altogether the hope of radical socio-economic transformation arising from the revolutionary turmoil ofreinstated the neoliberal strategy of capital accumulation and put the pre-revolutionary military and bureaucratic elites in power again.
Startlingly, this restoration was accomplished on the basis of mass mobilisation in support of the military. The book is organised into two parts: Rather than presenting these concepts schematically and logically, the author allows an organic emergence of the concepts through an investigation of the constitution of capitalism in Europe.
The first thing that may come to mind is how it is possible to comprehend the Egyptian revolution through probing capitalist developmental trajectories in Europe without not falling into the trap of Eurocentrism. The following chapter on the concept of Caesarism sheds light on the various relations between state and class to differentiate between bourgeois hegemony and Caesarism.

The enlargement of the neoliberal reforms after Mubarak came into power under the guidance of the IMF and the World Bank in the s indicated the authoritarian character of the regime and the intensification of the class struggle due to its unstable historical bloc.
Understanding through this lens, the author construes the recent revolution as a mass mobilisation against the global neoliberal offensive. Hence, the inability of the Egyptian working class to move the political revolution to a social revolution because of the lack of a directive centre precipitated the consolidation of the counter-revolution in a Caesarist form under the leadership of the Commander-in-Chief, el-Sisi.
Comparing the recent coup with the previous one inthe writer argues that while Nasser abolished feudalism and pushed back imperialism — and could be characterised as progressive albeit from a world-historical perspective and not from an emancipatory perspective — the Caesarism of Sisi is inherently reactionary as it has not to a great extent changed the neoliberal accumulation strategy and the power of the old ruling classes.Whenever the word "wedding" is mentioned the first thing people think of are music and dance, extravagant decorations, food, and swanky outfits.
