Book review: The city of dead Afaf Bennani Review As an outsider who has gained the trust and friendship of Cairo’s cemetery communities, Jeffrey Nedoroscik did a good job representing a sensitive and moving account of life in Cairo’s cemetery communities. Combining personal stories with more general historical, political, and sociological analysis, Jeff has presented residents of the City of the Dead; not as victims of outside forces, but as people whose everyday struggles express human aspirations and disappointments. His writing style is very easy which implies that the audience aimed to reach is from different levels. The audience might be people like us student who don’t know much about Cairo, the government of Cairo and the holder’s of power who can make change to the life of those who live in the cemeteries. The main question is related to the construction of the city of dead and how people decide to live there. In the beginning, he explained what is the city of dead from his point of view, from a historical one and also from western and traditionalist point of view.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
