Chapter Summary

Ibrahim Pasha's impact on the history of Çukurova, from his short rule of the area between 1832-1840, is perhaps most evident in labor rituals that continued to survive up until the 1920s. At the beginning of the 19th century, the regime in Cairo organized military campaigns outside the boundaries of the Ottoman province of Egypt under the then governor Muhammad Ali. For the Egyptians the most important crop was cotton, and they were familiar with the crop rotation system around cotton (cotton-sesame-wheat or cotton-wheat) employed in the Adana- Tarsus sub-region since the 16th century. The administrative changes brought about by the Tanzimat met with a more serious obstacle stemming from the human geography of the area.
