A Forster rarity, published shortly after his return to England following a four-year residence in Egypt as a researcher for the International Red Cross. Forster offers a critical assessment of British colonial rule in Egypt, expressing solidarity with the leftist leader Pasha Zaghlul Said and dismissing Alfred Viscount Milner, leader of the post-war British mission, as a "militant imperialist, who sincerely believed that the world would be happier if it were ruled by the British upper-middle-classes..."
