Item description for Nasser (Life&Times) by Anne Alexander...

More than thirty years after his death, Gamal Abd-al-Nasser remains one of the Arab world's towering figures. One of a small group of young officers who overthrew British-backed King Farouq in 1952, Nasser was 36 years old when he became the undisputed leader of Egypt. In 1956 he nationalised the Suez Canal, braving the anger of Britain and France. Many in the Arab world still admire his defiance of the colonial powers and his drive to raise living standards by modernising Egypt's economy, but others are more critical of his autocratic rule. This biography explores Nasser's life in the context of his turbulent times.

Reviews - What do customers think about Nasser (Life&Times)?

Short biography  Jan 19, 2007
This book is a short biography of modern Egypt,s best known leader. The book is concise but leaves many aspects of Nasser's legacy in the dark. It is of interst to note that the writer points out to the fact that many of the recent demonstrations in the arab world had thousands of Nasser's photographs ,in Cairo, Beirut and Amman.
It is a good book for someone who needs a quick and short one about Nasser and the effect that his memory has even on the new Arab generation that did not live through his reign. His memory is still alive despite the fact that during President Sadat's rule so many books and articles were written in newspapers in an attempt to tarnish his legacy.
