   Abstract = {Arab Patriotism presents the essential backstory to the
             formation of the modern nation-state and mass nationalism in
             the Middle East. While standard histories claim that the
             roots of Arab nationalism emerged in opposition to the
             Ottoman milieu, Adam Mestyan points to the patriotic
             sentiment that grew in the Egyptian province of the Ottoman
             Empire during the nineteenth century, arguing that it served
             as a pivotal way station on the path to the birth of Arab
             nationhood.},

   Abstract = {Copyright © Society for the Comparative Study of Society
             and History 2018. Through a new type of global microhistory,
             this article explores the remaking of the political system
             in Egypt before colonialism. I argue that developmentalism
             and the origins of Arabic monarchism were closely related in
             1860s Egypt. Drawing on hitherto unknown archival evidence,
             I show that groups of Egyptian local notables (a'yan) sought
             to cooperate with the Ottoman governor Ismail (r. 1863-1879)
             in order to gain capital and steam machines, and to
             participate in the administration. Ismail, on his side,
             secured a new order of succession from the Ottoman sultan.
             A'yan developmentalism was discursively presented in
             petitions, poems, and treatises acknowledging the new order
             and naturalizing the governor as an Egyptian ruler.
             Consultation instead of constitutionalism was the concept to
             express the new relationship. The collaboration was codified
             in the Consultative Chamber of Representatives, often
             interpreted as the first parliament in the Middle East. As a
             consequence of the sultanic order and the Chamber, Egypt's
             position within the Ottoman Empire became similar to a
             pseudo-federal relationship. I conclude by contrasting
             different ways of pseudo-federalization in the global 1860s,
             employing a regional, unbalanced comparison with the United
             Principalities and Habsburg Hungary.},

             in the nineteenth-century Ottoman Arab provinces},

   Abstract = {© 2017 by Duke University Press. This essay focuses on the
             month of Ramadan and its end celebration, ‘Id al-Fitr, the
             Festival of Breaking the Fast, in the Ottoman Arab provinces
             in the second half of the nineteenth century. What was the
             effect of new technologies and urbanization on these Muslim
             practices in their relationship to politics and the new
             public spaces? Building on recent scholarship, Mestyan
             argues that these were reconstituted as part of symbolic
             politics and served as a test period for using new
             technologies to synchronize collective action. He explores
             this process by historicizing the relationship between power
             and sound during Ramadan.},
