Many think of Muslims in Europe as a twentieth century phenomenon, but this book brings to life a lost community of Arabs who lived through war, revolution, and empire in early nineteenth century France. Ian Coller uncovers the surprising story of the several hundred men, women, and children – Egyptians, Syrians, Greeks, and others – who followed the French army back home after Napoleon’s occupation of Egypt.
