Provides new insights into the colonial history of Egypt, Ethiopia, and the Horn of Africa.

"A very welcome contribution both to the historiography of Late Ottoman Egypt and Ethiopian regional and urban history in the context of the ‘Scramble for Africa.’ Emirate, Egyptian, Ethiopian bolsters efforts to collapse traditional academic regional categories and bring Middle Eastern and African history into conversation."—Jonathan Miran, Western Washington University

"A well-researched, theoretically informed, and nuanced investigation of this important but neglected topic that adds to the growing literature on Ottoman and Egyptian imperial ventures in Africa."—James De Lorenzi, associate professor of history, John Jay College of Criminal Justice

"The research is solid and deep, and draws on British government records, French missionary archives, Arabic sources, oral histories, and more. This book contains abundant material and forges new ground."—Heather J. Sharkey, professor, Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, University of Pennsylvania
