The Revolution Added Two Years: On Cairo

Take the passion out of the thesis

The journalist put effort, as an outsider, in collecting data about the subject (I was one of his interviewees). Yet I would argue that he collected the sort of data that meet his own preconceptions (which are secular by default). He stands, from my point of view, as an example of the notion that taking the passion out of the thesis is not an easy task to perform.
