The author offers insights on Egypt’s failed revolution: how it happened and why it did not succeed. Samuel Tadros argues that, as Egypt continues on its destructive downward path, it is important to examine the role that its revolutionaries played in that trajectory. Tadros raises long-unanswered questions about those revolutionaries: Who were they and where did they come from? What was their ideological and organizational composition? Why were they angry at the Hosni Mubarak regime? What were their demands and aspirations for a new Egypt? And how did they attempt to achieve them?
