This thesis explains Egypt's rise to preeminence in the Arab Middle East from 1952 to 1967. It examines the implementation of President Nasser's domestic and foreign policies as prescribed by the ideology of pan-Arabism and how this ideology, coupled with Nasser's dynamic personal leadership, allowed Egypt to rise in power and influence within the region. This thesis also considers how, after Nasser's death, the new policies and personal leadership of his successor, President Sadat, led to Egypt's abandonment of the role Nasser had staked out for it. Sadat's refusal to allow the ideology of pan-Arabism to dominate his domestic and foreign policies opened the door for peace between Egypt and Israel, and marked the beginning of significant economic and strategic cooperation between Egypt and the United States.
