Summary Welch discusses the special difficulties of ruling Egypt, such as the anomalous administration, foreign interference, and national dissent, as well as the men who ruled and their perceptions of those they governed. Despite the many complexities that defined the scope of their work, British officials were able to accomplish a great deal during Cromer's tenure, a tenure which began by announcing its end and ended by proclaiming a new beginning. The many aspects of this crucial period in Anglo-Egyptian history are considered in the light of the long-term objectives of Cromer and his men, the nationalist response, and the general decline that occured toward the end of his tenure when the occupation was nearly complete. By the time of Cromer's departure, new circumstances cast a long shadow across the future of the occupation and threatened to undermine the achievements of Anglo-Egyptians.
