Abstract:Nominally Britain and Egypt were eqal partners in the Anglo-Egyptian Condominium. In practice Britain saw Egypt as a junior partner. The period around 1924, culminating in the anti-British, pro-Egyptian uprising of 27 and 28 November 1924, illustrates the strained relationship between the two countries, as each sought to control the affair a of the Sudan and gain the allegance of the Sudanese. The author explores the nature and extant of the Egyptian influence on the Sudan prior to 1924 and the major role which Egypt played in creating the early phase of Sudanese nationalism; how the Sudan government had always been biding its time to deal Egyptian influence a mortal blow; and, finally, how the Egyptian stand on the 1924 events aided Britain's polices and enabled the Sudanese for the first time to view Egypt and their relations with her on rational (as opposed to emotional) and utilitarian (as opposed to ideological) bases. App., notes.
