Middle Eastern and Balkan Studies Series 2
The work explores the Egyptian question between 1831 and 1841 and focuses upon the struggle between Mehmed Ali Paşa and the Sultan. To this extent, it approaches the Egyptian question as an internal Ottoman problem, rather than as an international issue. The Egyptian question between 1831 and 1841 had very significant consequences on the Ottoman political developments. The study is organized under the titles of the rise of Mehmed Ali Paşa to power in Egypt and his early expansion into the Hijaz, the Sudan and the Morea (1804-31); the Syrian expedition and the occupation of Palestine and Syria by the Egyptian army (1831-33); European intervention, the Kütahya settlement, and the Treaty of Hünkar İskelesi (1832-33); continuing Ottoman-Egyptian tension (1833-38); the second Ottoman-Egyptian armed conflict (1838-40); the convention of London and the submission of Mehmed Ali Paşa (1840-41).
