Reviews

"Timothy Mitchell's new book is brilliant. Written for academics . . . the writing is superb. The prose is luminous and limpid, undergirded by steely passion and resolve."--EPD: Society and Space
"Rule of Experts is the most exciting and intellectually stimulating book about the Middle East to come my way in a long time. It is a brilliant set of inter-related essays about late-19th- and 20th-century Egypt. . . . This book will surely be required reading for most students and faculty in Middle East studies."--International Journal of Middle East Studies
"Rules of Experts is the most significant collection of essays by a single author to be produced in contemporary Middle East social science in a generation. There is no one writing today in the field more important than Mitchell."--Middle East Journal
"The importance of this book goes well beyond the study of Egypt and the Middle East, making it a must read for everyone interested in the formations and effects of modern power."--Transforming Anthropology
