To determine the role that foreign immigrants held in Egyptian society, the author looks in this study at what it meant to be Egyptian and how foreign immigrants differed. Her analysis covers a discussion on ethnicity, nationalism and citizenship, particularly in relation to Asiatics, Syrians, Libyans, Nubians, Minoans, and Indians. Selected catalogues of finds and other material illustrate to these 7 groups of 'foreigners'.
