“Soldiers, Spies, and Statesmen serves as an indispensable read for anyone seeking clarity on the ongoing struggle between the military, security and political apparatuses of Egypt’s autocracy.”—World Policy Journal

“Hazem Kandil has written a brilliant revisionist account of the origins of the Egyptian Revolution. He focuses on how the regime’s repressive forces fell apart, making revolution possible. I found it eye-opening and convincing—a triumph.”—Michael Mann, author of The Dark Side of Democracy

“This is a fascinating book that should be required reading for anybody interested in Egypt’s past and what happens next. It gives a unique insight into what the military and security forces were thinking and doing, and why they were not the monolithic force that most had imagined.”—Patrick Cockburn, author of The Occupation
