Lecture by Najat Abdulhaq on her book Jewish and Greek Communities in Egypt: Entrepreneurship and Business Before Nasser: Volume 58 (I.B.Tauris, 2016) in which she looks at the role Jewish and Greek communities had in the economy in pre-Nasser Egypt.
In the years following Nasser's rise to power, the demographic landscape and the economy of Egypt underwent a profound change. Related to the migration of diverse communities, that had a distinguished role in Egyptian economy, from Egypt, these shifts have mostly been discussed in the light of postcolonial studies and the nationalisation policies in the wider region. Abdulhaq focuses instead on the role that these minorities had in the economy of pre-Nasser Egypt and, by giving special attention to the Jewish and Greek communities residing in Egypt, investigates the dynamics of minorities involved in entrepreneurship and business.
