The new Arab family by Nicholas S Hopkins( )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume represents revised versions of a collection of papers presented at the Cairo Papers Ninth Annual Symposium on "The New Arab Family," held in May 2000. Marriage, divorce, and related topics were center stage, particularly in the demographic papers. Another focus was to combine two very different approaches to the study of the family - on the one hand demographic, and on the other broadly sociological or anthropological, or as some would say, psychodynamic. The research covers most of the Arab world, though with a focus on Egypt

Directions of change in rural Egypt by Nicholas S Hopkins( )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 1,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume based on recent fieldwork by distinguished specialists includes information on the changing economic situation in the country-side, particularly after the 'owners and tenants' law of 1992. Along with the effects of structural adjustment on agriculture, marketing, and rural life, several chapters address the declining trend of rural Egyptians to emigrate. Other chapters examine changes in consumption patterns and health, various rural social processes and the 'new lands' being reclaimed in Egypt's desert areas, representations of the rural population in the media and in statistics, and their own changing self-image."--Jacket

Ghost riders of upper Egypt : a study of spirit possession by Hans A Winkler( )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1933 the German anthropologist Hans Alexander Winkler came across a "spirit medium" named Abdel Radi in a village near Luxor in Upper Egypt. Abdel Radi was periodically possessed by the ghost of his uncle, and in that state passed messages to those who came to seek help. In an intense study, Winkler lays out the construction of the world shared by the rural people, with its saints and pilgrims, snake-charmers and wandering holy men, all under the overarching power of God, and shows how Abdel Radi's mediumship made sense in that context. Winkler's book was ahead of its time in analyzing a single institution in its social context, and in showing the debates and disagreements about the meaning of such strange events."

Agrarian transformation in Egypt by Nicholas S Hopkins( Book )

14 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nicholas Hopkins, a professor at the American University of Cairo, studied the Upper Egyptian village of Musha in the early 1980s, mainly to document the effects of rapid mechanization on the agricultural labor process. He also succeeds in creating a vivid picture of an Egyptian village. His descriptions of Musha society and politics; of how Musha's land is owned, recombined into vi- able farm enterprises, and cropped; and of the practical reality of the state trying to impose its agricultural policies at the village level make the book good general reading on modern Egyptian rural life. The author com- bines his observations and interview findings with data from local civil records and two surveys to fashion a final product that reads better than either the customary anthropological treatise or a numbing presentation of household-survey results. The book makes clear that in Egypt, agricultural change is occurring in a rural milieu dominated by inequality. In Musha, 15 percent of the landholders officially farm 51 percent of the land. The unofficial concentration is probably even greater. Technical change has induced new kinds of relations between larger and smaller farmers. When the larger farmers own the tractors and irrigation pumps, the result is new ways for them to benefit from their poorer neighbors. -- Trom JSTOR at http://www.jstor.org (May 23, 2013)
Nubian encounters : the story of the Nubian ethnological survey, 1961-1964 by Nicholas S Hopkins( )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1960s the construction of the Aswan High Dam occasioned the forced displacement of a large part of the Nubian population. Beginning in 1960, anthropologists at the American University in Cairo's Social Research Center undertook a survey of the Nubians to be moved and those already outside their historic homeland. The goal was to record and analyze Nubian culture and social organization, to create a record for the future, and to preserve a body of information on which scholars and officials could draw. This book chronicles the research carried out by an international team with the cooperation of many Nubians. Gathered into one volume for the first time are reprinted articles that provide a valuable resource of research data on the Nubian project, as well as photographs taken during the field study that document ways of life that have long since disappeared"--Publisher

This contains collected papers which chronicles the history of Egyptian protest groups over the last three decades."Cairo Papers in Social Science" first appeared in 1977, the year that witnessed the famous bread riots in Egypt.

This issue includes a collection of papers delivered at Cairo Papers 30th Anniversary Symposium that deal with the different protest groups that have been active in Egypt in the last three decades, including the Kefaya movement, the Negm-Imam phenomenon, the feminist movement, Coptic activism, and the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as workers' protests, rural resistance, and the judges' call for reform

Anthropology in Egypt, 1900-1967 : culture, function, and reform = al-Anthrūbūlūchīyā fī Miṣr 1900-1967 : al-manẓūr al-thaqāfī wa-al-waẓīfī wa-al-iṣlāḥī by Nicholas S Hopkins( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthropology as a discipline came to Egypt around 1900, as foreign anthropologists reported home on the culture they found. Gradually the intellectual approach was influenced by the functionalist school, stressing that a society consists of interlocking parts. As Egyptians took the lead in anthropology, in the 1930s, the discipline entered into the debate about the need to reform Egyptian society and culture especially in the rural areas, against a general background of functionalism. This approach dominated through the 1960s, when there was a break in Egypt because of the Six-Day War and in world anthropology because of the emergence of new intellectual models. This study traces the evolution of anthropology in Egypt through the stories of its practitioners such as Blackman, Galal, Evans-Pritchard, Hocart, Abbas Ammar, Hamid Ammar, Berque, Abou Zeid, el Hamamsy, Uways, and their contemporaries, showing their challenges and accomplishments. --Provided by publisher
