After three years of intense research that was like putting a 1000 piece puzzle together – patience, organisation, identification,  the Field Guide is OUT and available at AUC Press, Oxford University Press, and Amazon. Information about the book launch will be posted within the  week.

This book is a comprehensive study of the history in naming streets of Central Cairo, including Zamalek (Gezira Island). It is the first of its kind. Thank you to all who generously contributed time, information and the ever sought after clue that helped unravel stories of nearly 800 street names.
