Description
Labor and the State in Egypt surveys the relationships of workers and trade unions with the state, bringing to light the often overlooked effect of workers' collective actions in shaping public policy.

Beginning with the 1952 coup which brought Gamal 'Abd al-Nasir to power, the book combines an interpretive analysis of workers' positions on economic issues with an institutional study of union behavior.

Marsha Pripstein Posusney also offers insights into the new regime and labor from 1952-1960, the rise of a union confederation and the etatist economy enshrined in populist rhetoric during Nasir's rule. The coverage extends through 1995, when the government seemed ready to launch a large-scale privatization effort opposed by workers.
