Egypt in the 20th century: chronology of major events
This book deals with the history of Egypt in the 20th Century, which is immensely fascinating and stimulating. Egypt begins the 20th Century as a province of the Ottoman Empire, with her finance under the dual-control of Britain and France and her administration under the control of Britain. This complicated political and financial system eliminates the power of Egyptians to govern themselves. However, there are two main events that contribute to changes in the history of Egypt; the 1919 Revolution makes Egypt a semi-independent State, and the 1952 Revolution awards her full sovereignty, abolishes the monarchy, and declares Egypt a Republic. During World War I and World War II, Egypt becomes the principal Ally to Britain in the Middle East, whereas during the Cold War, Egypt faces intense political and economical pressure from both the Eastern and Western blocs. Egypt also has to fight four wars against Israel, however, she surprises the whole world when President Sadat of Egypt visits Jerusalem in 1977, and signs a peace treaty with Israel in 1979.
