(p.1) Introduction
Nurturing the Nation

Lisa Pollard

University of California Press

Sir Milne Cheetham, Egypt's acting consul, has passed a report to the British Foreign Office subjecting the uprising series of violence in Egypt. This was made in May 1919. The report was all about the Egyptian peasants, workers, and bourgeois nationalists, who were largely uninterested in politics. The British Foreign Office maintains Egypt as their protectorate state because of the 1919 Revolution. The British missed a number of crucial points about Egyptian politics and the ways that it was shaped. This book covers the nation's hospitality and charity, which attributes were political symbols throughout the unstable years of 1919–1922. Taking good care of the nation as a family was a requirement or a sine qua non of Egyptian politics by 1919. A preoccupation with charity during the 1919 Revolution was symbolic of Egypt's political acumen.
