This part gives solid evidence that progress is a product of the horizon of humanity. Part II comprises Tarek Heggys writings on the Egyptian mind. Part III is an attempt to diagnose the illnesses of contemporary Egyptian political and socio-economic actuality and prescribe two solutions: a liberal political system and a modern market economy driven by an advanced cadre that represents the best of modern management techniques. Part IV provides a full-scale criticism of the theory and practices and accurately predicted, in the 1970s, the collapse of the socialist system.
