Synopsis:

 "This important book rescues Egypt’s migrant workers, the tarahil, from their usual neglect. It follows them from the fields into the urban labor market to argue that, in spite of the weakness of their position, they played a significant political and economic role in the turbulent years of the Sadat presidency and beyond."--Roger Owen, Harvard University

Analyzing the role of rural workers in Egypt’s economy, James Toth provides a bottom-up account of the country’s recent history, including the 1961 agricultural crisis that undermined Nasser’s Arab socialism, the 1965-66 recession that doomed Egypt’s performance in the Six-Day War, the rural roots of the 1977 Cairo bread riots, and the Islamic movement of the 1980s and 1990s.
Toth’s work is grounded in a richly detailed ethnographic study of migrant (tarahil) labor and of the everyday lives of the workers who perform it. He maintains that, because peasants make up a substantial portion of the Egyptian working class, their influence has been great, often manifesting itself in ways unforeseen by government planners and thwarting government schemes for promoting economic development.
Combining anthropology with political economy, Toth presents a clear theoretical framework for examining the role of unskilled rural labor in the developing world. He makes a strong case for rethinking current notions of socioeconomic change in developing economies.

James Toth, associate professor of anthropology at the American University in Cairo, is the author of articles in Dialectical Anthropology, International Journal of Middle East Studies, Critical Sociology, and British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies.
