Part One: Anarchism and Syndicalism in the Colonial World “Diverse in race, religion and nationality ... but united in aspirations of civil progress”: The Anarchist Movement in Egypt 1860–1940 Anthony Gorman University of Edinburgh Anarchism first appeared in Egypt among Italian political refugees and workers during the 1860s.
