Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Egyptian nationalism is an ideology that rose to prominence in Egypt before the British occupation to Egypt. It is first used to refer to the native officers' movement, led by Col. Ahmad 'Ur b, against Egyptian government policies that favored officers of Turkish, Circassian (Muslims from the Caucasus region), or other foreign extraction. In 1881-1882, Egyptians formed several societies, usually lumped together as the "National Party," that demanded constitutional rule, fought the Anglo-French Dual Control, and resisted Britain's invasion of Egypt to protect the Suez Canal and the rights of European creditors. The invasion triumphed, 'Ur b was arrested and exiled, and the party was disbanded.show more
