The history of capitalism in Egypt has long been synonymous with cotton cultivation and dependent development. From this perspective, the British occupation of 1882 merely sealed the country's fate as a vast plantation for European textile mills. All but obscured in such accounts, however, is Egypt's emergence as a colonial laboratory for financial investment and experimentation. Egypt's Occupation tells for the first time the story of that financial expansion and the devastating crises that followed. Aaron Jakes offers a sweeping reinterpretation of both the historical geography of capitalism in Egypt and the role of political-economic thought in the struggles that raged over the occupation. He traces the complex ramifications and the contested legacy of colonial economism, the animating theory of British imperial rule that held Egyptians to be capable of only a recognition of their own bare economic interests. Even as British officials claimed that "economic development" and the multiplication of new financial institutions would be crucial to the political legitimacy of the occupation, Egypt's early nationalists elaborated their own critical accounts of boom and bust. As Jakes shows, these Egyptian thinkers offered a set of sophisticated and troubling meditations on the deeper contradictions of capitalism and the very meaning of freedom in a capitalist world.

In occupied Egypt, British governmental programs were closely related to England's needs as an imperial power since Egypt was occupied because of its strategic position along the route to India. British presence there, however, inevitably led to modernization during the 32 years of British rule. During the first period the British were preoccupied with the prospect of imminent withdrawal. The second period emphasized programs for such reforms as hydraulic and agricultural modernization, wider education, and urban development. The final period covered the emergence of Egyptian nationalism, whose goals proved incompatible with British rule of Egypt in spite of efforts to deal with nationalism by repression or conciliation. Originally published in 1966. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

The History of Egypt

For all practical purposes, however, Egypt was, until 1882, an independent state.
Turkey's nominal sovereignty was consistently whittled down until the British
occupation in 1 882 severed direct political connection between Turkey and
Egypt.

Prepared in the Intelligence Branch of the War Office, and originally published in 1887, this book gives a detailed account of the 1882 Egyptian campaign, which was a rapid affair, commencing with the bombardment and subsequent occupation of Alexandria in July; the near defeat of the British advance force by the Egyptians at Kassassin, and terminating with the British victory at Tel-El-Kebir on September 13th 1882. The eight appendices offer considerable reference material including an alphabetical list of all British and Indian Army Officers engaged, with their services, honours, medals and decorations for the campaign. Regimental lists of killed and wounded for all actions, and a detailed Order of Battle. Statement of troops (Regimentally) conveyed to Egypt and the Transports (named) in which they proceeded. A further appendix has been added to the original text which contains a nominal roll of all ranks killed and wounded at Tel-El-Kebir. A short-lived, but lively, Victorian campaign.
