Introduction

The Egyptian Revolution was one of the most prominent in a wave of protests that swept the Middle East beginning in early 2011. While many countries, including Bahrain, Yemen and Syria also experienced social reverberations that emanated from Tunisia's popular protests, a social movement that some referred to as the "Arab Spring." The intensity and apparent success of the Egyptian Revolution captivated the world during and since the ouster of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. The revolution also focused attention on political and social conditions in one of the most populous and economically diverse countries in North Africa and the Middle East.
