BT Notes

Some Egypt books to look for: (try CSU / order?)
      • Afaf Lutfi al-Sayyid Marsot, Short History of Modern Egypt (Main Text)
2) Other mandatory and optional readings:
Some of these selections can be purchased from the bookstore. Otherwise you will need to
rely on the library reserve and photocopies if you choose not to invest in the texts. Either way,
it is the student’s responsibility to obtain a copy.
**Nagiub Mahfouz
