    Afaf Lutfi al Sayyid Marsot’s Egypt’s Liberal Experiment is a relatively straightforward history that argues for the failure of its eponymous topic between 1922 and 1936 This failure however was not due to any intrinsic problems with Islam but was the product of political social and economic circumstances with the obstructionist British presence acting as an aggravating factor In arguing against the belief that Islam and modernity are incompatible the author presents an argument that may have gone against the disciplinary grain at the time but is now accepted widely and has been addressed with much nuance and depth The work is therefore one of historiographical interest than a narrative that will offer much that is new to scholars of the fieldFollowing her introduction Marsot begins with an examination of the historical context leading up to the 1919 Revolution focusing particularly on the peasantry which she feels is most critical to understanding Egypt’s relationship to modernity The sum of her argument in this chapter is that conditions in the country were unsuitable for the establishment of a genuine democracy due to the lack of an educational base class stratification and communication networks She then follows the career of Wafd politician Saad Zaghlul and presents a or less typical history of the period between 1919 and 1924 that suggests that Egypt’s “independence” in 1922 was too ualified to allow for a truly democratic system The author then continues by narrating the Wafd’s tumultuous first era in power where its failure to keep campaign pledges and its autocratic tendencies led to a steep decline in popular support The British were able to take advantage of this by fragmenting the political scene which in turn allowed them to immobilize and control itA floundering economy and an increasingly oppressive political scene eventually forced the British to recall their hardline High Commissioner George Lloyd and replace him with the amiable Percy Lorraine Despite wanting to maintain the current government Lorraine acknowledged that he needed the Wafd in power which he in turn hoped would help establish a new treaty between Egypt and Britain Once the Wafd came to power however it found itself unable to come to negotiate a new relationship between Egypt and its de facto colonizer This outcome was blamed on the Wafd’s intransigence primarily by the British although the population as a whole lost support for the party as well due to what it perceived as political stagnation With party leader Mustafa Al Nahhas’ resignation King Fuad engaged a gambit intended to seize political hegemony and placed a puppet government in power under Ismail Sidi Political infighting as well as British control prevented the other parties from uniting to overthrow Sidi but the economic and political situation continued to decline leaving Britain in an increasingly vulnerable position A scandal in the Sidi government the death of King Fuad and the threat of an Italian invasion combined to bring all parties back to the table and agree on a new treaty in 1936Constitutional government returned and a relatively less ualified independence was achieved under this agreement but the growth of popular movements that had begun during the difficult times of the 1930s was not slowed In particular Misr al Fatat arose as an organization seeking complete independence but many others sought unsuccessfully to escape the three way power struggle between the palace the Wafd and the British Marsot’s final two chapters examine socioeconomic factors and intellectual trends that were occurring during her period of study In terms of the former her overall conclusion is that there was a lack of a social consciousness among politicians although there was limited in progress in several areas In terms of the latter intellectuals tended to gravitate towards the extremes of pro and anti westernism in their thinking as political stagnation grew entrenched with Islamic modernists attempting unsuccessfully to maintain the middle groundThus the liberal experiment of the era failed but it had little to do with Islam and much to do with a political scene dominated by segregated self interested elites and a population lacking the resources and infrastructure to overcome this situation Overall Egypt’s Liberal Experiment does not really stand out in the canon of interwar political studies but there is nothing particularly problematic about it either As mentioned earlier this text would be of historiographical interest to field specialists while non specialists will likely find it dry and difficult to approach Nonetheless as Marsot is a well established author it may be worth perusing in order to gain a better understanding of the author’s academic breadth
