Last Days of the Pharaoh
by Bradley Hope, Kindle Single: Amazon, 2012. 48pp.
Bradley Hope, a US journalist based in Cairo, examines Egypt’s 2011 uprising through interviews with senior officials and political leaders close to ousted president Hosni Mubarak.
Among the most notable interviews is one with Hossam Badrawi, the last secretary general of the then-ruling National Democratic Party, who was appointed during the 18-day uprising and failed to save the regime.
Another interview with Mohammed Ashoub, Mubarak’s long-standing personal make-up artist, reveals other hidden sides of the former president.
