Gamal Abdel Nasser arguably has had the greatest impact of any Middle Eastern leader of the twentieth century. His significance lies in his fostering of modern Pan-Arab thought, institutions, and policies, his transformation of Egypt from a feudal state under British protection to a developing industrial nation, and his contributions to third world politics. Despite his importance, however, the last thorough examination of Nasser's life and impact was published more than twenty years ago. Faysal Mikdadi's volume helps to draw together the writing on Nasser and to re-examine the origins of his thinking and the impact of his writings and policies.

After a capsule biography of Nasser and a detailed chronology, the volume is divided into chapters covering specific aspects of Nasser's life. Each chapter contains explanatory notes and a full bibliography. In addition to citing works in English, Arabic, and French, Mikdadi has included works from other major languages as well. Each bibliographical citation is accompanied by a brief summary note. The volume concludes with comprehensive author, periodical, and subject indexes. This work will be invaluable for scholars and students concerned with twentieth-century Middle Eastern Studies.
