Crisp hardcover. ; "A major study examines the mechanisms of British rule in Egypt and the Sudan since their conquest in 1882 and 1896-99 respectively. The author analyzes the ways and means by which a colonial power, such as Great Britain, has attempted to exploit competing political elites in Egypt and the Sudan in order to maintain her supremacy without having to resort constantly to the use of force. Several studies examine this relationship in greater detail. ... The final study in this book is devoted to the impact of Islam on the formulation of internal and external politicies in Egypt and the Sudan from the 1950s until the present. Special attention is paid to the evolution of populist Islamic movements of a more radical posture, and to their challenge to the present regimes in Egypt and the Sudan." ; 253 pages.
