Asrar Aza’maa W Fad’eh Al-Omalaa (The Leaders' Secrets and Scandals of Spies), by: Ismail El-Nakeeb, Cairo: GEBO. 2012.

General Egyptian Book Organisation (GEBO), has just released the latest book of the late journalist, Ismai’l El-Nakeeb, titled Asrar Aza’maa W Fad’eh Al-Omalaa (The Leaders' Secrets and Scandals of Spies).

The book tackles an important side of Egypt’s modern history, shedding light on the secret lives and ups and downs of Egyptian political decision-makers, including how they got their post in the first place.

The author manages to do this in a distinguished narrative language, focusing on certain personalities who played vital roles in Egyptian political decisions, such as Abdel Aziz Hegazy, Egypt’s prime minister from 1974-1975, late writer Anis Mansour and late minister of culture Badr Eddin Abou-Ghazi, whom the author regards as vital to political decision-making during the 1970s.
