Sadat’s Grave and the Commemoration of the 1973 War in Egypt

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


While there is certainly substance to Anderson's description, it does not, I think, present the whole story about the significance of cenotaphs and tombs of unknown soldiers. In this essay I shall argue that it is possible to take a wider view of the significance of such monuments, according to which the precise nature of their meaning depends on the cultural context, or lack of it, surrounding them.
