Nasser: A Political Biography

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, 1972 - 631 pages
"Gamal Abdul Nasser's sudden death in September 1970 at the age of fifty-two had an international impact the scale of which reflected both his own political stature and the critical state of affairs in the Middle East and the Arab world, which he had dominated for eighteen years. The aim of this book is to give a coherent account of Nasser's life and career for the general reader and to describe the historical circumstances which helped to form his political character and ideas. It will also try to distinguish what, if anything, was his own distinctive contribution to political thought or practice..." --Robert Stephens.
