Anticolonial Boycotts and National Trade

Anticolonial Boycotts and National Trade

(p.78) 3 Anticolonial Boycotts and National Trade
A City Consumed
Stanford University Press

This chapter traces the politics of commercial boycotts in interwar Egypt. Boycotts were a moment when consumption emerged as a political arena to defy colonialism, and they helped initiate broad public awareness that colonialism was at least partially implemented through consumption. In so doing, boycotts popularized a language of dichotomies to understand Egyptian politics and encouraged the development of nationalist industries and commercial spaces.

Keywords:   commercial boycotts, Egypt, interwar years, consumption, colonialism, Egyptian politics
