Summary and Info
Egypt is almost the size of Britain, France, and Germany combined, yet its nearly 70 million people are forced by geography to live in an area no bigger than Belgium. In this illuminating introduction to economic geography, the authors describe the myriad problems facing Egypt. They examine food scarcity, the effects of water and land shortage, the impact of globalization on Egypt's attempts to industrialize, population explosion, massive debt, unemployment, corruption, and Egypt's tourism industry.
