Let There Be Spring: Trump is Not the Future of Egypt by Dr. Lofty Basta is a compilation of essays and articles that provide critical insight into the "Arab Spring" revolution in Egypt. It contains the unique observations of a native Egyptian, now an American citizen, with a very keen intellect. These letters follow every major event in the Egyptian people's struggle for a government that represents their interests and rights. As a member of an Egyptian minority himself, he addresses the need to protect the rights of all people, especially minorities. Dr. Basta clearly illustrates what has happened in Egypt and what the ramifications are for each major event. He presents these in the order that they happened and in a way that everyone can clearly understand.

Dr. Lofty Basta's Let There Be Spring is a fascinating analysis of the ongoing Egyptian revolution. He has vividly described the reality that nation building is neither a fast nor an easy process. He also cautions the world to be patient and reminds us of the rough road the United States had to traverse on its way to the signing of the U.S. Constitution. Let There Be Spring was written by a true patriot who knows and loves Egypt and its people. He also has faith that a nation, that has been for thousands of years the heart and soul of what we now know as the Arab world, will develop into the model for universal human rights. Anyone wanting to clearly understand Egypt and the Arab Spring needs to read this book!
