Managing Egypt's Poor and the Politics of Benevolence, 1800-1952
Mine Ener

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"In this thorough and imaginative study, Ener examines the treatment of the destitute in a Middle Eastern country. Placing charity in a broad context, she shows how philanthropic enterprises became political instruments, how state and private charity interacted, and how poor people used the institutions provided for their care and discipline. Her book raises questions of wide interest and will appeal to historians of poor relief in any society."--Brian Pullan, University of Manchester
