A first rigorous analysis of Muhammad ‘Alī’s domestic policies, this book serves as an object lesson to economic planners in underdeveloped countries. With materials from British, French, American and Arabic sources, the author analyzes all aspects of Muhammad ‘Alī’s agricultural policies and offers startling conclusions necessitating a complete reassessment of Muhammad ‘Alī as reformer. Muhammad ‘Alī’s motive was primarily personal aggrandizement. His reforms promoted an independent Egyptian state; but his ill-planned policies are the source of many of Egypt’s present problems. A study of major importance to students of the contemporary Egyptian scene.
