Book Description:
Egyptian Society Under Ottoman Rule, 1517 1798 presents a panoramic view of Ottoman Egypt from the overthrow of the Mamluk Sultanate to Bonaparte's invasion and the beginning of Egypt's modern period. Drawing on archive material, chronicles and travel accounts from Turkish, Arabic, Hebrew, and European sources as well as up to date research, this comprehensive social history looks at the dynamics of the Egyptian Ottoman relationship and the ethic and cultural clashes which characterized the period. The conflict between Ottoman pashas and their Egyptian subjects and between the Bedouin Arabs and the more sedentary population is presented as is the role of women in this period and the importance of the doctrinal clash of both orthodox and popular Islam, Christianity and Judaism. Winter's broad survey of a complex and dynamic society draws out the central theme of the emergence from a period of ethnic and religious tension of an Egyptian consciousness fundamental to Egypt's later development. This book is intended for students and scholars of the history and politics of the Middle East, and all those with an interest in the Ottoman Empire and Egypt.
