An Incurable Past: Nasser's Egypt Then and Now

Meriam N. Belli


This book is a history of vernacular experiences of the 1950s and 1960s in Egypt. It focuses on schooling, conflict, and spirituality and discusses the political and cultural legacy of the Nasser years in today’s Egypt. At the same time, Mériam Belli reflects on the transformations brought about by the ’52 revolution in civic culture, in concepts of state and nation, in nationalist ideology in post-1950s Egypt, and in the development of religious ethno-nationalism in post-1970s Egypt.

Keywords: education, Egypt, history, memory, Nasser, nationalism, oral history, religion, war, revolution, vernacular
