Making of Iraq, The, 1900-1963
Making of Iraq, The, 1900-1963 (February 1997)
Capital, Power, and Ideology
Samira Haj - Author

"Theoretically sophisticated, analytically sound, cogently argued, and lucidly written, Haj's book makes the history and politics of Iraq from 1932 to 1958 much clearer than any previous work. Its usefulness has been further increased by the Gulf War and its continuing aftermath. The potboilers written in the wake of that war have added to the confusion, much of which is cleared up by Haj's work. The book is solidly based and researched in the essen...(Read More)

The Making of Modern Libya
The Making of Modern Libya (March 1994)
State Formation, Colonization, and Resistance, 1830-1932
Ali Abdullatif Ahmida - Author

"The question of civil society in the Islamic world and the relationship of state to society in the pre-colonial era is coming to be a central concern in the field. I think this book targets very well many concerns both in English-language and Arabic-language historiography about what we know of the 'pre-modern' or at least pre-colonial world. This book has an important contribution to make to contemporary academic and political discourse." -- E...(Read More)

Challenging the notion that the sixteenth-century Ottoman Empire was merely a reactive economic entity driven by the impulse to te...(Read More)

Urban Unrest in the Middle East

A Comparative Study of Informal Networks in Egypt, Iran, and Lebanon
Guilain Denoeux - Author

He reveals that, contrary to recent claims, informal associations do not necessarily play a stabilizing role in urban politics, but reveal themselves to be effective instruments for mobilizing popular dissent.

Denoeux identifies c...(Read More)
