Alexandria


Alexandria
Located on the Mediterranean coast in the North of the country, Alexandria (Arabic: Al-Iskandariya, Eskendereyya) is the second largest city, and largest seaport in Egypt. As of 2001, Alexandria had an estimated population of 3,500,000.

Alexandria was founded at about 331 BC by Alexander the Great. The city served as Egypt's capital for almost 1,000 years, only being replaced in 641 AD, when the Arabs conquered Egypt and set up a new capital at Fustat (now part of Cairo).

Product Description:

When Peter Stothard, editor of the Times Literary Supplement, finds himself stranded in Alexandria in the winter of 2010 after his flight to South Africa has been cancelled, he sets out to explore a nation on the brink of revolution.

Guided by two native Egyptians, Stothard traces his own life-long interest in the history of Cleopatra, and his repeated failure to write the book about her that he had always wanted to.

In Alexandria, part memoir and part travel literature, Stothard was the sights and sounds of the ancient city to reconnect with the formative experiences of his childhood education, and his literary career. Melancholy and sometimes humorous, Alexandria offers a first-hand glimpse into the fracturing police state of Hosni Mubarak, before the uprising in Tahir Square changed everything.
