Immerse yourself in the Victorian world of an Egyptian harem as Ellen Chennells reveals the true story of the inner life of the royal house as no one had before and no one has since. Engaged as governess to Egyptian Princess Zeyneb in 1872, Chennells' vibrant curiosity and keen powers of observation made her the perfect correspondent. With wit and eloquence she tells the fascinating story of her five years working for the ruler of Egypt during one of its most interesting modern periods. Chennells spares no details in relating the opulence of the royal palaces, fantastic festivals and weddings, trips to the pyramids, up the Nile, and summers in Constantinople. This first-of-a-kind ebook has over 70 new footnotes and ten additional photos to help put the story in historical and visual context. The introduction and footnotes are written by Brian V. Hunt, writer, frequent visitor to Egypt, and a longtime student of that country's ancient and modern history. Ellen Chennells will make you laugh, keep your interest throughout, and leave you with a lump in your throat. For less than you'd spend on gas going to the library, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.

The emergence and evolution of Egyptian feminism is an integral, but previously untold, part of the history of modern Egypt. Drawing upon a wide range of women's sources--memoirs, letters, essays, journalistic articles, fiction, treatises, and extensive oral histories--Margot Badran shows how Egyptian women assumed agency and in so doing subverted and refigured the conventional patriarchal order. Unsettling a common claim that "feminism is Western" and dismantling the alleged opposition between feminism and Islam, the book demonstrates how the Egyptian feminist movement in the first half of this century both advanced the nationalist cause and worked within the parameters of Islam.

A "New Woman" was announced in Egypt at the turn of the nineteenth century. With a new genre of prescriptive literature, new products, a new education, and a physically changed home, she increasingly emerged in public life. This book discusses and debates the place of Egyptian women, while focusing on consumerism and education. Russell sheds much-needed light on the struggle for identity in Egypt at a time of considerable flux and tension and provides a powerful angle to explore changing concepts of social dynamics and broader debates of what it meant to be "modern" while retaining local authenticity.
