Book about Egypt banned in Egypt

A few weeks ago I wrote a lengthy review of John R. Bradley's book "Inside Egypt". I just came across a newspaper article from a week or so ago that notes the book has now been banned in Egypt. This rather makes Bradley's point of the Egyptian regime's ideological vacuity, it stands for nothing but its own enrichment and survival and will suppress those that point this out.
