Ms. Murphy talked about her book Passion for Islam: Shaping the Modern Middle East,The Egyptian Experience, published by Scribner. In it, Ms. Murphy, a Pulitzer-winning journalist and former Cairo bureau chief for the Washington Post, argues that a myriad of social, political, and religious factors have made today’s Middle East a combustible region and has contributed to Islam’s new power and turmoil.
