This chapter discusses the political and ideological function of official history and its limits. It questions the common historical utterance according to which Nasser established free universal education. In respondents’ memories of the 1950s and 1960s, female education and rural literacy rank as the most important changes in education at the time. This chapter thus examines education both in the 1950s-60s and in post-1952 political and civic culture, discussing the politics of memory, textbooks, education, and literacy.

Keywords:   civic education, history, literacy, Nasser, politics of memory, school, textbooks, women’s education
