From all parts of the world - Egypt with Sudan and Libya
The series 19th century geographic anthology resurrects the greatest age of discovery, in which geography was trained as a specialist science and the audience followed explorers and researchers to distant continents. A diverse landscape of magazines brought these "new" parts of the world into the study rooms and living rooms with articles that were as knowledgeable as they were lively. These brief text forms of the new and the peculiar represent a fund of world discovery between the Enlightenment and the modern age. The original texts and maps collected and explained here raise a long-hidden treasure trove of knowledge. An ideal addition to current country customers and travel guides!
The volume From all parts of the world - Egypt with Sudan and Libya explains the common background of the modern states of Egypt, Sudan and Libya as part of the Ottoman Empire, which was lost in the First World War, and also brings to light some of the causes of the current conflicts and development problems. For the Ottoman Egypt The geographically most exciting areas and topics are presented in nine chapters, including of course the Nile from the source rivers to the delta, the oriental city using the example of Cairo and Alexandria, the major project of the Suez Canal and the framing desert landscapes with their oases. The Sudan emerged from 1820 as an Egyptian colonial area, whereby the violent amalgamation of the most diverse cultures and an economy based on the slave trade virtually marked the state's collapse in 2011. The current problems in Libya are already laid out in the 19th century, such as in the dualism of Tripolitania and Cyrenaica as well as the appendage of the hinterland, which was never really ruled by the Turks.
