Roy in English

Here's an English version of the Olivier Roy essay on post-Islamist revolution that I linked to a few days ago.

Roy is quite interesting on the topic of what the revolt is NOT. For analysis of what it is (and who some of those leaders are whose existence Roy denies), I would recommend the following article by Prof. Paul Amar:
Amar makes it clear that while many of the middle /professional class young people in Tahrir Square may well have been 'post-ideological,' the revolt was to some degree precipitated by an anti-globalization labor movement whose existence has been almost completely overlooked by the MSM.
