9780786428939: The Pasha: How Mehemet Ali Defied the West, 1839-1841

With striking parallels to recent confrontations in Iraq, this is the story of the first Western international coalition to suppress an aggressive Middle Eastern ruler. The challenger was Mehemet Ali Pasha, called the founder of modern Egypt. Convinced that the Europeans would never be able to unite against him, he sought, with charm, brilliance and bravado, to create a powerful Muslim counterweight to the encroaching West.

Drawing on research on three continents, this timely book takes the reader into the heart of a crisis as France, Great Britain, the Ottoman government and the Pasha of Egypt maneuver to defend their interests in the Eastern Mediterranean. Here are the passionate debates among French and British politicians as they struggle to control the Pasha without provoking a European war. Here are the battlefields--from the Euphrates to Beirut--on which Mehemet Ali's modernizing forces created the facts that fed the crisis. Here are the Sultan's ministers at Istanbul, buffeted by the threats of European ambassadors. And here, in confrontation, is the fascinating Mehemet Ali Pasha, in constant conversation with those seeking to deflect him from his dangerous ambition. As France began the fortification of Paris, as Prussia contemplated the French threat of a war on the Rhine and as British warships flooded the Mediterranean, Mehemet Ali sat cross-legged on his sumptuous divan, looking from his palace out over his beautiful fleet at anchor in the bay of Alexandria, and challenged the western world.

About the Author :

Letitia W. Ufford, an independent scholar, received her Ph.D. in Middle Eastern history from Columbia University.

Review :

Mehemet (or Muhammad or Mehmet) Ali (1767-1848) looms large in l9th Century Middle Eastern diplomatic history. Juridically simply the governor (pasha) of Ottoman Egypt he became in fact a threat to the Ottoman Empire. Earlier in the 1830s he had wrested Syria from Ottoman control, and only European intervention stopped his army's march on to Istanbul. In 1839 Ottoman Sultan Mahmud II's effort to redress this loss brought another military defeat and another European intervention, organized by Britain and opposed by France. After two years of diplomatic maneuvering followed by British-led military action Mehernet Ali was ousted from Syria and left again as only the Pasha of Ottoman Egypt. The crisis illustrates a pattern of politics by which no major changes within the Middle East would be countenanced until accepted by a Europe whose different states all the while warily watched each other. The Pasha lets the diplomatic crisis unfold as understood and experienced by the principal actors giving it the dramatic quality of theatre, The Pasha occupies centerstage, but scarcely less present are Mehemet Ali's Son. Ibrahim, Palmerston, Guizot and Thiers not to mention cameo roles for such diverse persons as Alexis de Tocqueville. Lebanon's Amir Bashir, and the confidante and mistress of several of the principals, Princess Lieven. --L. Carl Bown, Foreign Affairs

A fascinating account. --Afaf Lutfi al Sayyid Marsot, author of Egypt in the Reign of Muhammad Ali

Description du livre McFarland Co Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1811, a bloody Cairo massacre led by the governor of Egypt dealt a deathblow to the series of slave dynasties that had ruled that country for hundreds of years. Their nemesis was Mehemet Ali Pasha, Muslim subject of the Ottoman Empire. From that day on, the man known as the founder of modern Egypt has been a continuous source of fascination in European history. And from that day until his death, the Pasha s life was a continual crisis for modern Europe. This book thoroughly investigates the great international crisis of 1839-1841, precipitated by the Pasha when he turned against his own Sultan, advancing his still fledgling forces against the longstanding Ottoman Empire as well as the European Great Powers, seeking sovereignty over Syria and the authority to solidify Egypt as a powerful and autonomous modern state. This study consists of a month-to-month account of those three pivotal years, providing introductory information on Mehemet Ali s life and the events leading up to the crisis. An epilogue discusses the fate of Egypt after the Pasha s death. In addition to investigating the aims, accomplishments and personality of the Pasha, this book describes the leaders of France, England, Egypt and the Ottoman Empire as they struggled against the increasingly ominous ascendance of Mehemet Ali. Drawing important parallels between the crisis of 1839-1841 and later events, the book argues that the Pasha created a regional paradigm that continues to the present day. A glossary, multiple maps, and chronological lists identifying the major persons and events help tell the complex story of Mehemet Ali Pasha s confrontation with the West.
