Kadri traces the movement from pre-capitalist relations to capitalist relations in the Arab world, and argues that the process of colonialism cannot be understated as an attempt to strip Arab people of sovereignty over their natural resources p.
However, many of the other chapters do not make this explicit connec- tion between what is happening inside Egypt and the global capitalist system. The two concepts that are central to the volume are marginality and exclusion. Debates over the definition of marginality and its political usefulness are present throughout the contributions, leading to interesting questions about the concept itself.
While some authors argue that marginality can lead to positive transformation, such as Asef Bayat in his chapter on encroachment where he argues that the margins are a site of counter-power, and Reem Saad in her chapter on an Upper Egyptian village where she poignantly suggests marginalisation can be seen as a frontier rather than a periphery, others argue that mainstream understandings of the term are problematic.
Ray Bush posits that marginalization is a direct effect of capitalist accumulation, and that includ- ing those on the margins will not eradicate poverty or lead to social justice p. In her chapter on workers, youth and class, Rabab el-Mahdi makes the succinct point that the concepts of marginalization and poverty have replaced the concepts of class and exploitation pp. Thus we see competing notions of marginality that give the book added depth but at the same time somehow take away from the critical contribution that links marginality to capitalist accumulation.
The argument that there is a lack of class analysis on the Middle East in general is one of the threads tying the volume together.

Several authors call for scholarship that looks at Downloaded from cnc. Others demonstrate through their research the importance of neoliberalism in the Egyptian context. In her chapter on transport and new satellite cities in Cairo, Dalia Wahdan shows the intersection of the state and class, and the effects of new elite com- munities.

Saker el Nour shows the centrality of poverty to changes in Egypt, and Heba Hagrass shows how increasing privatization has affected disabled people in Egypt. Other chapters represent rich ethnographies that focus on groups that have been dramatically affected by neoliberal policies in Egypt. Each chapter highlights an exclusion, and builds on the claim the volume makes that neoliberalism in Egypt is central to any analysis of the revolution.
The problem of framing and representation is at the heart of this volume, and is what the editors clearly aim at transforming. Indeed the editors note that the framing of the revolution as detached from class is itself a product of neoliberal ideology. In the context of the Middle East and North Africa, reference to class and capitalism has been all but erased from most of the academic landscape. This has in part been to the influence of the development paradigm, as noted by Reem Saad and Ray Bush, as within this paradigm marginalization is framed as a problem that can be solved by policies that bring people into the market.
Instead, this volume emphasizes that inequality is a direct result of con- temporary capitalism and the way power is distributed, and thus represents an invaluable contribution to the post literature. Endnote 1.
