(p.303) Conclusion The Ottoman Origin of Arab Nationalisms
Arab Patriotism

Princeton University Press

This concluding chapter explores the relationship between nineteenth-century patriotism and twentieth-century nationalisms. One line of reasoning regarding the relationship of the Egyptian version of Arab patriotism and twentieth-century pan-Arabism might focus on the power and image of the khedives among Ottoman and non-Ottoman Arabs. Another argument can be made about the relationship as only a discursive one between Ottoman Arab patriotisms and all kinds of Arab nationalist ideologies. It is possible to see the educated textual production of patriotism as a pool of texts and concepts in Arabic that would serve as resources for later ideologies. A third, easier argument can be made about the relationship between Arab patriotism in Egypt and twentieth-century Arabism in Egypt. Overall, the theory of patriotism may serve as an explanation of the religious potential that silently impregnated secularist Arab nationalisms in the twentieth century, both at the level of ideas and at the level of social life.
