Summary
Modern Egpt, Second Edition presents a concise survey of Egyptian history from the mid-eighteenth century to the present. It focuses on Egypt's evolution as a nation-state, dispelling common misconceptions about Egypt's modern history. Renowned scholar and professor Arthur Goldschmidt calls upon recent Egyptian and Western scholarship to document pivotal points, such as the 1952 revolution, and to illuminate controversies, such as those surrounding Sadat's role in the 1973 war with Israel. Modern Egpyt is anecdotal as well as authoritative, covering social history, religion, politics, economics, military history, geography, and even the psychology of selected leaders. Faruq's impotence, Nasir's paranoia, and Sadat's glamour are all presented as they relate to policy motivations and outcomes. Modern Egpyt paves the way to a clear understanding of events leading up to the Camp David accords of 1978 and then points beyond them to the emergent Muslim opposition, Sadat's assassination, and Mubarak's regime. - Back cover
