This book examines the escalation in religious violence in Egypt since 2005 and the public discourses behind it, to connect with some of the key debates in Egyptian politics and international relations. With a focus on the role of religion in the politics of communal and national identity and also the impact of media on sectarian conflict, the author examines in depth the processes through which identity and belonging are negotiated via the media within the wider framework of changing socio-economic and political realities in Egypt. Using a combination of methodological approaches, including comprehensive surveys and discourse analysis, the research offers a fresh perspective on the politics of identity in Egypt.
