Abstract : This essay offers a personal and critical reading of the evolution of the desire of New Towns in Cairo which is present since the first Post-Independence Master Plan of 1956. It looks at the policies that facilitated its emergence, the administrative mechanism behind it, and how successive political regime have defined and used desert residential areas for different purposes. The chapter allows one to understand the intricacy inherent in this spatial expansion and the way the land rent has been appropriated by an elite social class close to the regime.
