Overview
More than thirty years after his death, Gamal Abd-al-Nasser remains one of the Arab world’s towering figures. One of a small group of young officers who overthrew the British-backed King Farouq in 1952, Nasser was 36 years old when he became teh undisputed leader of Egypt. In 1956 he nationalized the Suez Canal, braving the anger of Britain, France, and Israel. Many in the Arab world still admire his defiance of the colonial powers and his drive to raise living standards by modernizing Egypt’s economy, but others are more critical of his autocratic rule. This new, illustrated biography explores Nasser’s life in the context of his turbulent times.
