This controversial subject has provoked much debate in political, ideological and historical circles, reflecting the monumental forces behind its creation. The study reconstitutes Suezs corporate culture, and its dichotomous place in both Egyptian society and the British and French imperial communities, a duality that led in part to the 1956 crisis. Historical business analysis, illustrations and figures contribute to understanding this phase as well as the firms ability to create a second life after the crisis.
