Early edition of a study on Saad Zaghloul and Adly ibn Khalil Yakan hostility in Egyptian Wafd Party. Zaghloul, (1857-1927), was an Egyptian statesman and patriot, leader of the Wafd Party, and of the nationalist movement of 1918-19, which led Britain to give Egypt nominal independence in 1922. He was briefly prime minister in 1924. Adly Yakan Pasha was an Egyptian political figure. He served as the 14th Prime Minister of Egypt between 1921 and 1922, again between 1926 and 1927, and finally in 1929. This book describes in all detail the veto of Adly Pasha on the Milner Report and the conflict between him and Zaghloul.
