About this product
- DescriptionThe Power of Representation traces the emergence of modern Egyptian national identity from the mid-1870s through the 1910s. During this period, a new class of Egyptian urban intellectuals-teachers, lawyers, engineers, clerks, accountants, and journalists-came into prominence. Adapting modern ideas of individual moral automy and universal citizenship, this group reconfigured religiously informed tions of the self and created a national sense of Egyptian-ness drawn from ideas about Egypt's large peasant population. The book breaks new ground by calling into question the tion, common in historiography of the modern Middle East and the Muslim world in general, that in the nineteenth century secular aptitudes and areas of competency were somehow separate from religious ones. Instead, by tying the burgeoning Islamic modernist movement to the process of identity formation and its attendant political questions Michael Gasper shows how religion became integral to modern Egyptian political, social, and cultural life.
