Synopsis

Egypt by Jen Green

The World in Focus series provides an up-to-date view of individual countries around the world. Including discussion of the major challenges facing each country now and in the future. These books give a real insight into life in every part of the globe. Egypt is an ancient country, but it is also a young country, established as an Arab republic in the 1950s. Its position between Africa and Asia means that Egypt plays an important role in Arab and international politics. Egypt has one of the world's fastest-populations and its cities are plagued by problems such as unemployment, overcrowding, poverty and pollution. These issues, together with the ongoing threats of terrorism and unrest in the area, pose a considerable challenge for Egypt in the twenty-first century.
