The Coptic Christians of Egypt have traditionally been portrayed as a "beleaguered minority." This book uses newly discovered Coptic archival sources to present a vivid and alternative image of the community, examining Coptic agency in the twentieth century. Vivian Ibrahim reveals a strong Coptic response to the emergence and threats of Political Islam from the 1940s, and examines how Copts negotiated a role for themselves during the colonial period and in Nasser's post-revolutionary Egypt. Dismissing the monolithic portrayal of the community, she highlights the varied Coptic factions and groups that contributed to the identity of the Coptic community in the first half of the twentieth century.

Vivian Ibrahim is a Post-Doctoral Researcher examining European-Muslim identities at University College Cork, Ireland. She holds a PhD from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, where she was also a Teaching Fellow in Middle Eastern History. She has published in The Arab Reform Bulletin (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace) and is an Executive Board member of the Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism and a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal for Arab Studies.
