9780312296216: Egypt and American Foreign Assistance 1952-1956: Hopes Dashed

From the ground up the story of missed opportunities, mixed messages, and mutual frustrations in American relations with Egypt at a seminal time. Unprecedented in its drawing on Egyptian official sources, Hopes Dashed sheds new light on the difficulties and challenges of a nascent relationship characterized by missed opportunities, mixed messages, and mutual frustrations. However beneficial the intentions of those on the ground, their desire for Egyptian economic development was stymied by bureaucratic obstacles both in Egypt and the United States. And as Egypt became embroiled in the Cold War, policy decisions increasingly were made at higher levels by officials more concerned with geopolitical and Arab-Israeli issues and less how U.S. assistance could help the domestic political economy of Egypt. Alterman compellingly shows how the interests of both countries diverged to eventually undermine an early American attempt at economic assistance.

Review:

"Alterman provides a valuable framework for improved understanding of the tradeoffs affecting American economic relations with the Third World..." - Bill S. Mikhail, kiplinger.com

"...a laudable attempt to describe Nasser's early relations with the United States from the bottom up..." - Tore Tingvold Peterson, International History Review

"The book is a significant contribution to the literature of American foreign relations and the flawed U.S.-Egyptian relationship." - Terri A. Thomas, H-Levant, H-Net Book Review

"...studies that treat the role of economic aid as an instrument of American foreign policy toward Egypt." - L. Carl Brown, Foreign Affairs, 3-4/01/03

This is an important book on a timely subject: missed messages and missed opportunities between the United States and the Arab world. Michael Doran, Princeton University
