This dissertation is on Cemal Pasha's Governorate in Syria during WWI. The aim is to explore the military, social and political reasons behind his existence in Syria. The outbreak of the WWI signified a new period in the history of Ottoman Syria and gave an occasion to the Ottoman Government to save themselves from all kinds of foreign influences and to assert state authority over Ottoman citizens in Greater Syria. With this motivation, the third man of the ruling party, the CUP, was sent to Syria to establish the state's authority there, and to organize an expedition against Egypt to liberate it from the ''British yoke''. This dissertation elaborates Cemal's preparations for an expedition against Egypt and his activities to remove all the intermediaries between state and its citizens in Syria, examining all the influential groups such as the Arabists, the Zionists and the Christians.
