The British in Egypt : Community, Crime and Crises 1882-1922 Hardback

Part of the International Library of Historical Studies series

Description

Egypt during the British occupation (1882-1922) was a strategically important site for securing British interests in the region.

Most studies of Britons in Egypt during the occupation focus on the lives and activities of law-abiding British military and political elites.

Using a variety of primary sources, this book deepens our understanding of the hidden British community beyond these elites - the lower and working classes, and those engaged in crime and misconduct - by bringing to light their demographic profile, socio-occupational diversity, criminal activities and varying responses to the crises represented by World War I and the revolutionary period of 1919-1922.

It will be essential reading for historians of British imperialism, Egypt and the Middle East.
