  2. Egypt's political economy : power relations in development

    Farah, Nadia Ramsis
    Cairo ; New York : American University in Cairo Press, 2009.

    This is a new assessment of the impact of power relations on economic development.This new study deals with the unfolding of the great political and economic transformations of the modern Egyptian state from the appointment of Muhammad Ali as governor of Egypt in 1805 to the era of President Mubarak, with a special focus on the period 1990-2005, which witnessed a rigorous implementation of structural adjustment policies, the acceleration of economic privatization and liberalization, the emergence of a group of neo-conservatives within the ruling National Democratic Party, and the consolidation of business interests and representation in parliament and government. The author asserts that the modernization process in Egypt over the last two centuries has been determined by power relations and their articulation, and so she investigates in depth the impact of power relations on development strategies, on political liberalization, on politicized Islam as a hegemonic ideology adopted by the state since the beginning of the 1970s, and on gender relations in development.

  3. Religious strife in Egypt : crisis and ideological conflict in the seventies

    Farah, Nadia Ramsis
    New edition. - London : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2013.

    This critical analysis investigates the causes that brought about one of the most tumultuous periods in modern Egyptian history - the clashes between the Muslims and Copts during the 1970s. A unique retrospective, it features probing interviews with Egyptian intellectuals, writers, political and religious leaders, as well as common citizens from both the Muslim and Copt communities. Within a framework of economic, political and ideological factors, Nadia Ramsis Farah is able to synthesize a compelling portrait of a troubled national conscience in the face of religious strife. First published 1986.
