Re-Envisioning Egypt 1919-1952

The monarchical period covered here lasted only thirty-three years, less than a generation and a half. The period started in a spirit of great optimism generated by the 1919 Revolution and what must have seemed like the almost miraculous success in getting the British to abandon their eight-year-old protectorate—which succeeded creeping occupation since 1882—for a more indirect form of influence. As with many other aspects of Egypt's long history, there is much work to be done. And as is happening successfully in the field of Egyptian archaeology, it is vital that it be done, wherever possible, in partnership with the country's own historians. This is not an easy task. For a number of powerful reasons, exchange between the scholarly community inside and out has become more and more difficult in recent decades.
