Abstract:Purpose of this article is to study assassinations in Egypt between 1910 and 1954, and to set these incidents in the context of general Egyptian history and of assassinations in the Middle East and elsewhere. The study was essentially complete before Sadat's assassination and does not dwell on the post-1954 period, but is should provide a useful historical background for that dramatic event. The first part of this article is a narrative account of the events under study. It shows that Egyptian assassinations came in two main waves - one after each war - with a lesser cluster of assassinations or attempted assassinations between 1910 and 1915 and another in the 1930s. In the second part an analysis takes up a series of questions with regard tot he events listed in the first part. App., notes, tab.
