In praise of books : a cultural history of Cairo's middle class, sixteenth to the eighteenth century by Nelly Hanna( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A landmark volume that reveals a lively middle-class Egyptian culture during the first three centuries of Ottoman rule--a major departure from traditional studies focusing on the ruling/elite class rather than the popular masses. In fine detail, the author explores economic influences on culture during periods of plenty and poverty. She examines the bond between commerce and escalating literacy via the building of schools, the availability of cheap paper, and the proliferation of books. And she assesses coffeehouses, storytellers, and phantom plays as a principal circuit for the spread of oral middle-class culture. Drawing on published and unpublished sources, she unveils a full-fledged Cairene middle-class culture that bridges the gap between the salons (majalis) of the elite and the common people."

Making big money in 1600 : the life and times of Isma'il Abu Taqiyya, Egyptian merchant by Nelly Hanna( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and Turkish and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nelly Hanna's work challenges the standard perceptions about Middle East society and economy of the seventeenth century. Both novel in its approach and information, this book's central theme revolves around the rise of an indigenous form of capitalism existing as early as the 1600s. Making Big Money in 1600 examines the reemergence of the economic sector and its complex influences on social conditions during this time. By examining the life and work of Ismail Abu Taqiyya, Hanna traces the relationship between economic activities and culture."
The State and its servants : administration in Egypt from Ottoman times to the present( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of original essays elucidates the structures and functions of five centuries of Egyptian administration, within the state and outside its framework, as well as the relationships between the administration, the state, and the people. By examining various bodies - including courts, the taxation system, guilds, and the state bureaucracy itselfit traces the evolution of Egyptian bureaucracy from the traditional Ottoman system through the more centralized structures of Muhammad Ali to the emergence of the modern state system. The collection creates a much-needed framework for the study of the historical development of modern Egyptian administration, effacing in the process some of the artificial boundaries that have separated the Ottoman from the modern period. By looking at the evolution of Egyptian administration in a social context, the essays emphasize a continuity that permits a new look at Egyptian history. The volume includes essays by prominent historians, many of whom ordinarily publish in French or Arabic
Études sur les villes du Proche-Orient XVIe-XIXe siècles : Hommage à André Raymond by Jean-Luc Arnaud( )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

À l'occasion du vingt-cinquième anniversaire de la publication du livre Artisans et commerçants au Caire au XVIIIe siècle, l'Institut Français d'Études Arabes de Damas a entrepris d'organiser, sur une suggestion de?Abd al-Razzaq Moaz, un colloque rendant hommage à André Raymond, directeur de l'IFEAD de 1966 à 1975. Introduit par une analyse rétrospective d'André Raymond sur son propre travail, le présent ouvrage constitue les Actes de cette manifestation qui s'est déroulée en mai 1999. Les diverses contributions qu'il contient permettent de replacer l'ensemble de l'œuvre de l'auteur dans le contexte général de la mise en place de l'administration ottomane dans les villes arabes, notamment dans le domaine juridique où la présence des juges hanafites et des traducteurs indique la suprématie du pouvoir ottoman. Dans les treize articles de ce recueil, est décrit le fonctionnement de villes telles qu'Alep, Acre, Damas, Alexandrie ou Le Caire. Divers types de sources? archives des tribunaux, plans, chroniques, recensements économiques, annuaires administratifs et commerciaux? sont analysés non seulement dans la perspective de l'histoire politique, de l'histoire économique et sociale mais aussi dans celle de l'histoire culturelle

Nommer les nouveaux territoires urbains by Germain Adell( )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'incertitude domine le débat sur les nouveaux territoires urbains, souvent perçus par défaut : non-ville, a-t-on dit durablement dans des revues savantes. La volatilité du vocabulaire qui désigne ces espaces est particulièrement sensible au cours des périodes d'extension urbaine forte et rapide, comme la fin du XIXe siècle ou les cinquante dernières années du XXe siècle. Les mots tentent alors leur chance et leur succès dépend de leur degré d'appropriation sociale. Les mots de la ville s'expriment dans des registres aussi bien universels que très localisés ; leurs références combinent des éléments géographiques, économiques et sociaux qui se traduisent par des termes techniques, des appellations populaires ou des toponymes. La richesse des lexiques étudiés dans cet ouvrage réflète la grande variété des modèles de croissance des villes qui, bien souvent, n'exclut ni la monotonie des paysages ni la violence de la modernité
