I found this book in a bin for $1.00 I read it in about 3 days. Very accurate and very informative. I enjoyed it a lot.

The book was written by William Stadiem. It is 389 pages. I believe it is very accurate in describing the times and the problems King Farouk faced when he became king. One can almost feel sorry for him for a lot of reasons, ranging from the palace insiders' intrigue to the foreign interests that precipitated his fall.
While in exile it is almost a different story.
Besides this book and the "Last Pharaoh" there is another written by Adel Sabit " A King betrayed".

Egypt royal family

Título: “Princesses d'Egypte”

de Caroline Gaultier-Kurhan

Présentation de l'éditeur:

Enfin un livre paraît, kaléidoscope de la vie des princesses égyptiennes de la dynastie fondée par Méhémet Ali au début du XIXe siècle. Cette enquête érudite et passionnante où se mêlent chroniques, anecdotes, archives familiales, nous fait entrer à l'ombre subtile du harem. Goût, luxe, raffinement, intelligence et culture y vivent enlacés, les princesses y reçoivent une éducation, y rêvent des plus hautes destinées. On passe du harem au palais et du palais au harem, lieux de réception, d'audiences, d'ambitions, de diplomatie, de ballets, de prodigalité, de rumeurs, de scandales. Paradoxe absolu, on voit s'y dessiner un courant d'émancipation, de modernité et de rationalisme. Que dire sinon que le harem s'inscrit à l'avant-garde. Pour en parler avec des mots justes, il fallait non seulement être une historienne confirmée de l'Egypte moderne, mais aussi un fin connaisseur des usages et des moeurs de cette lignée dynastique. Caroline Gaultier-Kurhan, en vertu de sa formation et d'une expérience familiale, remplit en harmonie ces deux conditions. Elle conte avec une verve sans pareille la vie des pharaones au palais d'Abdine.
