Muhammad Abduh, tokoh reformis Islam, karena menghalalkan bunga bank,

The eighteen day revolt that ended Hosni Mubarak's thirty years of rule marked a historic turning point in the political fortunes not only of Egypt, but of the entire Middle East. While the impact of that seminal event will continue to unfold for years, this volume, written by members of the Department of Political Science at the American University in Cairo, presents a timely and authoritative exploration of the circumstances and implications both political and theoretical that surrounded what has come to be known as the Tahrir Revolution. The authors balanced scholarly analysis illuminates much about the practical meaning of the revolution for Egyptians, other regional actors, and students of political science in the broadest sense.

Following discussions on scientific biography carried out over the past few decades, this book proposes a kaleidoscopic survey of the uses of biography as a tool to understand science and its context. It offers food for thought on the role played by the gender of the biographer and the biographee in the process of writing. To provide orientation in such a challenging field, some of the authors have accepted to write about their own professional experience while reflecting on the case studies they have been working on. Focusing on (auto)biography may help us to build bridges between different approaches to men and women's lives in science. The authors belong to a variety of academic and professional fields, including the history of science, anthropology, literary studies, and science journalism. The period covered spans from 1732, when Laura Bassi was the first woman to get a tenured professorship of physics, to 2009, when Elizabeth H. Blackburn and Carol W. Greider were the first women's team to have won a Nobel Prize in science.
