about

Nasser at War analyses a critical turning point for the modern Middle East. From his 1956 Suez triumph to the 1967 defeat, President Nasser of Egypt dominated the Arab revolution. Drawing on new Arabic material, this history casts a fresh light on Nasser's era and legacy of conflict. Its exploration of his changing enemy images, and how his former US ally came to be viewed as an imperialist opponent, provides an essential background to developments in the contemporary Arab world.
LAURA JAMES is a doctoral student at the University of Oxford.
