Aaron G. Jakes is Assistant Professor of History at The New School, where he teaches on the modern Middle East and South Asia, global environmental history, and the historical geography of capitalism. His first book Egypt’s Occupation: Colonial Economism and the Crises of Capitalism was published by Stanford University Press. He is currently working on two new projects. The first, entitled The Fanatical Radical and co-authored with Hussein Omar (University College Dublin), is a political biography of the itinerant scholar, educator, journalist, and activist ‘Abd al-‘Aziz Jawish. The second is tentatively entitled Renting the Waters: The Suez Canal in Global History. This research takes up the history of the Suez Canal from the early 1800s into the present as a unique vantage from which to explore the shifting and contested relationships between state rents, debt, taxation, and profit that have shaped the geopolitics of capital accumulation.
