Stanford Bookstore Meet the Author: Joel Beinin, "Workers and Thieves"

Join us for a book talk and signing with Stanford professor Joel Beinin as he discusses his new book, "Workers and Thieves."
In this book, Beinin surveys the efforts and impacts of the workers' movements in Egypt and Tunisia in the 1970s. He argues that the 2011 uprisings in these countries—and, importantly, their vastly different outcomes—are best understood within the context of these repeated mobilizations of workers and the unemployed over recent decades.
Beinin is the Donald J. McLachlan Professor of History at Stanford University. He has written or edited ten books, most recently Social Movements, Mobilization, and Contestation in the Middle East and North Africa, co-edited with Frédéric Vairel (Stanford, 2013) and The Struggle for Worker Rights in Egypt (Solidarity Center, 2010). His articles have been published in leading scholarly journals, as well as The Nation, Middle East Report, The Los Angeles Review of Books, South Atlantic Quarterly, Le Monde Diplomatique, and others.
