The Turks in Egypt and their Cultural Legacy

Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu
Translated by Humphrey Davies

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

Though Egypt was ruled by Turkish-speakers through most of the period from the ninth century until 1952, the impact of Turkish culture there remains under-studied. This book deals with the period from 1805 to 1952, during which Turkish cultural patterns, spread through reforms based on those of Istanbul, may have touched more Egyptians than ever before.
