There are certain trade-offs after the first year of courses. The historian takes more classes and reads more extensively, not only on nationalism in Egypt, but also on Egyptian intellectual life, the history of Cairo, and the labor movement. The political science student may have read less on Egypt and more on nationalism outside the Middle East and may need more familiarity with the secondary literature on the time and place of his research. Yet, as my first political science professor, Milton Lodge, told me, “You are always playing catch up” in reading specialized literatures, and many researchers have reaped windfalls precisely by bringing the sensibility of one discipline more centrally into the other, as in the cases of the historians Marc Trachtenberg in international relations and Elizabeth Perry in the political economy of China, among many others.
