In highlighting the continuing relevance of the past, this work stands in contra-distinction to the current tendency to give primacy to the new and ever-present, e.g. the recent Egyptian uprising is shown as part of an historical continuum of conflict rather than an insolated incident, a point astutely unraveled by S. Rosenblum in the interview she conducted for East Sydney Radio.
