Between the British invasion of 1882 and the emergence of the first nationalist parties in 1907, Egypt’s foreign resident communities were among the country’s most influential social groups. This chapter focuses on the role of Egypt’s largest and possibly most powerful foreign resident community, the Greeks, with particular emphasis on their relationship to the British occupation during Lord Cromer’s term as proconsul from 1883 to 1907.
