Nasser emerged from the Suez crisis as the pre-eminent leader of Arab nationalism. ‘Nasserism’ was elevated to the status of an ideology throughout the Arab world. As this chapter points out, the confrontation at Suez had the opposite effect to that intended by the planners of the invasion. The intervention stimulated radical nationalism. Existing trends were magnified and strengthened. This chapter traces the antecedents of these developments from the time of the Egyptian revolution of 1952 and calls attention to Nasser's ‘extraordinary feat’ in 1954 of securing British military withdrawal from Egypt after seventy-two years of occupation.
