All the Pasha's Men by Khaled Fahmy

Book Description

While previous scholarship has viewed Mehmed Ali Pasha as the founder of modern Egypt, Khaled Fahmy offers a new interpretation of his role in the rise of Egyptian nationalism, locating him in the Ottoman context as an ambitious Ottoman reformer. Basing his work on previously neglected archival material, the author demonstrates how Mehmed Ali sought to develop the Egyptian economy and to build up the army, not as a means of gaining Egyptian independence from the Ottoman Empire, but to further his own ambitions for hereditary rule over the province. In its analysis of nation-building and the construction of state power, the book makes a significant contribution to the larger theoretical debates. It will therefore be essential reading for students in the field, as well as for Ottomanists, military historians and those interested in the development of the modern nation-state.

Muhammad Ali Pasha and His Sabil by Khaled Fahmy Muhammad Ali Pasha and His Sabil, Paperback (January 2005)

Muhammad Ali Pasha, ruler of Egypt from 1805 to 1848, commemorated his son Tusun, who died of plague in 1816, with a sabil (a public cistem and water dispenser) of an architectural and decorative style new to Egypt. This guide to the spectacular sabil explains why and how it was constructed, how it was used, and how it changed over time.

All the Pasha's Men by Khaled Fahmy All the Pasha's Men, Paperback (March 2002)

While scholarship has traditionally viewed Mehmed Ali Pasha as the founder of modern Egypt, Khaled Fahmy offers a new interpretation of his role in the rise of Egyptian nationalism, firmly locating him within the Ottoman context as an ambitious, if problematic, Ottoman reformer.
