"Generation Revolution is an excellent social history of Egypt's persistent pathologies, as well as a universal story about the difficulties of changing deeply ingrained societal attitudes." - New York Times Book Review

"Rachel Aspden's Generation Revolution offers sharp insight into how the youth movement came together and why it fell apart...Chronicling the experiences of four young Egyptians, the book provides fascinating detail but no easy answers." - Washington Post

"A sobering but necessary education." - Publishers Weekly
