EGYPT AND THE SUDAN

Robert O. Collins

ALTHOUGH IT IS THE FASHION, if not the duty, for writers of history to differ, past and present historians of Africa, the Middle East, and of the British Empire would agree that the history of the British occupation of the Nile Valley is of vital concern to their specialized studies.1 Indeed, Ronald Robinson and John Gallagher, with Alice Denny, in Africa and the Victorians: The Official Mind of Imperialism ( London, 1961), have made Egypt the linchpin of the European partition of Africa, the British occupation of which led inexorably to the creation of much of Britain's African empire.

There are several useful bibliographies of modern Egypt and the Sudan. For Egypt the reader should consult René Maunier, Bibliographie économique, juridique et sociale de l'Égypte moderne (1798-1916) ( Cairo, 1918), and the New York Public Library, Modern Egypt, A List of References to Materials in the New York Public Library, compiled by Ida A. Pratt under the direction of Richard Gottheil ( New York, 1929). The other well-known bibliography of Egypt, Prince Ibrahim-Hilmy, The Literature of Egypt and the Soudan from the Earliest Time to the Year 1885... ( 2 vols.; London, 1886-87), unfortunately has no subject index. Although these bibliographies refer to works in Arabic, the thorough student should consult Carl Brockelmann, Geschichte der Arabischen Litteratur ( 2 vols.; Weimar, 1898- 1902), and 3 supplements (Leiden, 1937-42), and Yūsuf Ilyās Mu`jam al-Maṭbū'āt al-'Arabīyah wa-l- Mu'arrabah Sarkīs ( "Dictionary of Works in Arabic or Translated into Arabic") ( Cairo, 1928-31). For more recent publications Yūsuf As'ad Dāg+h+̲ir, Maṣīdir al-Dirāsah al-Adabīyah: al-Fikr al-Arābī al-Hadīt+h+̲ fī Siyar A'lāmihi ("The Sources of Literary Study: Modern Arab Thought in the Biographies of its Great Men") ( Beirut, 1955), should be supplemented by Charles Kuentz and M.-M. Anawati, Bibliographe des ouvrages Arabes imprimés en Egypt en 1942, 1943, et 1944 ( Cairo, 1949) and the publications of the Egyptian Library at Cairo, Dār al-Kutub, Al-nass+h+̲rah al-Miyṣīyah li-l-Maṭbū'āt ("The Egyptian Publications Bulletin"), published triennually since 1956. The Sudan is even better served than Egypt for comprehensive bibliographies. First and foremost is Richard Leslie Hill, A Bibliography of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, from the Earliest Times to 1937 ( London, 1939), and its sequel, Abdel Rahman el-Nasri, A Bibliography of the Sudan 1938-1958 ( London, 1962). Although both these bibliographies contain works in Arabic, again the student should consult Brockelmann. For literature concerning the Sudan since 1958, Sudan Notes and Records ( Khartoum) publishes reviews and book and periodical lists of the latest materials. Hill has also written a stimulating bibliographical essay entitled "Historical Writing on the Sudan since 1820," Bernard Lewis and Peter Malcolm Holt, eds., in Historians of the Middle East ( London, 1962), pp. 357-66.
