Throughout the 20th century, Egyptian nationalism has alternately revolved around three primary axes: a local Egyptian territorial nationalism, a sense of Arab ethnic-linguistic nationalism, and an identification with the wider Muslim community. This detailed study is devoted to the first major phase in the perennial debate over nationalism in modern Egypt--the territorial nationalism dominant in Egypt in the early 20th century. The first section of the book examines the effects of World War I and its aftermath, which temporarily gave rise to an exclusively Egyptianist national orientation in Egypt. Subsequent sections consider the intellectual and political dimensions of Egyptian interwar years. Egypt, Islam and the Arabs is the first volume in a new Oxford series, Studies in Middle Eastern History. The General Editors of the series are Bernard Lewis of Princeton University, Itamar Rabinovich of Tel Aviv University, and Roger M. Savory of the University of Toronto.

"[A] remarkable book, which deserves to be read by everyone who is interested in politics in the Third World...It is the story of a revealing moment in the history of the modern Middle East: the attempt by a small but very influential gorup of 'modernist' writers, intellectuals, and politicians to invent a 'totally new' territorial and nationalist 'collective self-image' for Egypt."--The New Republic "The most comprehensive and detailed treatment of the subject to date."--The Muslim World "Gershoni and Jankowski have made an outstanding contribution to our understanding....No serious student of twentieth-century Egypt can afford to ignore their book."--International History Review "Clearly written and persuasively argued...Gershoni and Jankowski have produced a valuable study on one phase of the Egyptian nationalist image in the modern period."--Middle East Review "Conceptualization and analysis are outstanding; the quantity and quality of sources virtually unparalleled."--Journal of Church and State "[A] remarkable book, which deserves to be read by everyone who is interested in politics in the Third World...It is the story of a revealing moment in the history of the modern Middle East: the attempt by a small but very influential gorup of 'modernist' writers, intellectuals, and politicians to invent a 'totally new' territorial and nationalist 'collective self-image' for Egypt."--The New Republic "The most comprehensive and detailed treatment of the subject to date."--The Muslim World "Gershoni and Jankowski have made an outstanding contribution to our understanding....No serious student of twentieth-century Egypt can afford to ignore their book."--International History Review "Clearly written and persuasively argued...Gershoni and Jankowski have produced a valuable study on one phase of the Egyptian nationalist image in the modern period."--Middle East Review "Conceptualization and analysis are outstanding; the quantity and quality of sources virtually unparalleled."--Journal of Church and State "This detailed and carefully crafted study...will add greatly to our knowledge of the development of nationalism in modern Egypt."--International Journal of African Historical Studies
