Warning: May contain some inappropriate language. TRAD 101: MIDDLE EAST HUMANITIES---FINAL EXAM REVIEW SHEET (this is for the second half of the course material, study your mid-term review sheet and test too) Exam structure: 40 multiple choice questions 20 true / false questions 20 fill in the blank 10 points of short answer questions 10 points for one essay question (with several questions to choose from) = 100 points Know these people/characters and why they are important: Napoleon – French revolutionary military leader, who went to Egypt in 1798, after England had arrived and arrived to take over colonially and went on a scientific mission. He sent out fliers announcing to the people that he was liberating them from the Ottoman empire, really just to make them a colony, which he secured away from the British empire. He brought over many scientists who recorded the region well. He also brought with him the French influence which included the printing press. al-Tahtawi – an Imam who went on an education mission to Paris in 1826 and wrote about the similarities between the ME and Europe, and wrote a famous book about all the good things he found that were kosher with Islam. He especially like the political and social order in France. He spent his life then translating things into Arabic Rose al-Youssef - This is both the name of a woman and her journal, which is still to this day printed in Egypt. Rose was orginally a Lebanese writer and actress. She moved to Egypt, the other center of the nahda to continue in her career, but made a name for herself as an editor of her journal which ended up beginning the careers of many important writers and political cartoonists. Gamal Abdel Nasser - a charasmatic leader of Egypt from 1953 (with others who led a coup) and individually as President of Egypt from 1956 to his death from ill health and finally heart failure in 1970. The coup replaced a monarchy that had been in effect since Egypt's independence in the 1920s though it was under a lot of British influence. The coup brought Egypt into true independence. Nassar was famous as an advocate and eventually became THE symbol of the ideology of Pan-Arabism, which he thought could get the Arab world to bond in a way that would make it a world-factor in politics and trade much like the EU is now for Europe. This was not to ever come to full realization though for a while Egypt and Syria joined as one country, splitting again after several years. This Pan_Arabism was counted by religous groups with the idea of Pan-Islamism; that Islam is the bonding force, this too did not succeed in creating a single Islamic state or federation of states to face western pressures and influences. Anwar Sadat
