This chapter discusses the influential role of Egyptian daily newspapers in the interwar era. The daily newspaper was the dominant agent in print culture, the most widely read source of information with the highest circulation. In the interwar era, Egypt's leading dailies were also Arab dailies that were distributed and read in other Arab countries. Tracing their coverage of and immediate reaction to international affairs indicates how contemporary politics, specifically the political and ideological rivalry between the European democracies and their authoritarian challengers, was understood by Egyptians.
