By Herman R. Lantz | Go to book overview

search assistant, was in charge of the fieldwork and the collection of primary source materials. He contributed to the organization, and analysis and he was quick to grasp the significance of looking at the community from a socio-historic perspective. He was resourceful, innovative, and insightful. Kathy Alix devoted several years to abstracting basic documents, organizing the material, and providing insights and suggestions.

During the several years of research for this manuscript, I and my staff were privileged to talk with many citizens of Cairo. These people
