Overview

Nasserism is one of the few words which identifies a person with a specific creed. Like Bonapartism, the ideology of Nasserism represents a fundamental premise about the Arab world.

During the last ten years of Abdel Nasser's life, the ideology which bears his name assumed its final shape. The political, social, and cultural aspects of the ideology which the revolutionary regime in Cairo tried to formulate and adapt to the special conditions of Egyptian society are detailed and analyzed in this study.

The conceptual framework of the book, outlined in the introduction, articulates four main components of ideology; the book is structured on this division. The first part deals with ideas concerning the structure, the internal processes, and the world situation of society. A second covers the philosophy of history, or the way society views its past. A third deals with the broad outlook in man, society, and the world. And the fourth section discusses the approved values and goals set for society. The book is a model of clarity and objectivity—essential reading for people interested in the Arab Revolution of our times.
