This chapter discusses the most prominent historians of the period and highlights the most dominant themes in scholarly coverage of 1919–52 Egyptian history, in English, French, and Arabic works. Examining the major themes and biases as they have evolved over time, this chapter also provides an important guide for both beginning and advanced scholars and suggests paths for future research. It reminds one that both earlier and later works of scholarship, memoir, and popular history are equally important to conducting research today. This chapter investigates all aspects of a generation's worth of Egyptian history and introduces new approaches to both underappreciated and popular categories of analysis including domestic politics, foreign policy, the military, education, social reform, gender, class, popular media, art, and literature.

Keywords:   scholarship, memoir, Egyptian history, politics, foreign policy, military, education, social reform
