Show Summary Details


This chapter studies the film Nasser 56, which seems to suggest a potent nostalgia for the nationalist project, noting that the film avoids Nasser's nationalization and import-substitution policies, and instead emphasizes the much less controversial Suez crisis. It also reveals that while the film marked many faults within Egyptian society, everyone was eager to take credit for it.

Keywords: Nasser 56; nationalist project; import-substitution policies; nationalization; Suez crisis; faults; Egyptian society
