9780813348339: A History of the Modern Middle East

This comprehensive work provides a penetrating analysis of modern Middle Eastern history, from the Ottoman and Egyptian reforms, through the challenge of Western imperialism, to the impact of US foreign policies. After introducing the reader to the region's history from the origins of Islam in the seventh century, A History of the Modern Middle East focuses on the past two centuries of profound and often dramatic change. Although built around a framework of political history, the book also carefully integrates social, cultural, and economic developments into a single, expertly crafted account. In updating this fifth edition of the late William Cleveland's popular introductory text, Martin Bunton provides a thorough account of the major transformative developments over the past four years, including a new chapter on the tumultuous Arab uprisings and the participation of Islamist parties in a new political order in the Middle East.

Recensione:

" A History of the Modern Middle East is a comprehensive work integrating social, cultural, and economic developments into a single, expertly crafted account.”
SirReadaLot

Praise for Prior Editions:

"This volume is history in the best sense. …A superbly written analysis of the social and political disruptions of the Middle East. This updated volume does an excellent job of weaving together various strands of a complex subject in a coherent narrative. It is recommended reading for all serious students who want to understand how the Middle East got to where it is today."
Phebe Marr, author of The Modern History of Iraq and fellow at the U.S. Institute for Peace

"This is the best comprehensive survey of modern Middle East history in the literature. The authors excel at translating complex and controversial subject matter in a highly readable manner without sacrificing cogent and insightful analysis. I highly recommend it. "
David W. Lesch, professor of Middle East History, Trinity University

“This excellent survey has been used in many colleges and universities as a standard text since its first edition…In this particularly turbulent period of history, this book should be of interest not only to students, but also to every citizen who has to make some judgment, one way or another, about the US role in the Middle East. "
Choice

"William L. Cleveland updates his text on modern Middle Eastern history in this third edition, focusing on political, social, economic, and ideological developments throughout the region. Cleveland makes it clear that this book is meant to be 'an examination of the past, not of the present or the future,' but reserves space in the Epilogue to discuss the ramifications of the September 11th terrorist attacks and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq."
Middle East Journal

"The book masterfully intertwines complex strands of history—from sectarian conflict in Lebanon to the Arab-Israeli conflicts, to the impact of oil wealth and the Iranian revolution. No other volume does this so well."
Elizabeth Thompson, History, University of Virginia

"Highly recommended for anyone interested in a remarkably well-crafted introduction to the history, politics, and international relations of the Middle East."
International Journal

"Cleveland's timely book is now the most comprehensive, up-to-date introduction to the history of the modern Middle East, and it is likely to remain so for a good long while. He does a marvelous job of rendering intelligible the complex political and social changes that the Middle East experienced in the past two centuries. Readers will be grateful to Cleveland for blending much of the best recent historical scholarship into this fine book and for making it eminently readable."
Philip S. Khoury, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

"An excellent overview of the history of the modern Middle East. Eminently clear, comprehensive, and insightful. A truly superior book."
James Jankowski, University of Colorado

"Cleveland has put his recognized expertise on Arab nationalism and modern Islamic movements to particularly good use in this learned, sensitive, and highly readable account of the past two centuries of Middle Eastern history. The formidable task of combining thematic with country-by-country treatment is accomplished remarkably well."
Donald M. Reid, Georgia State University

"Lucidly written, well researched and an ideal work of introduction and reference for students of the region."
Middle Eastern Studies

"This survey of the history of the modern Middle East has been well received by scholars in the field. Sophisticated and stimulating…Cleveland has contributed a well-balanced, well-researched, and well-planned introductory text for the study of the modern Middle East."
Judith Mendelsohn Rood, Turkish Studies Association Bulletin

"The difficulties of writing an introductory text on the modern Middle East have largely been overcome by William Cleveland in this lucid and impartial history. Perhaps the greatest virtue of the book is the author's sympathetic detachment in his treatment of an ideologically charged history. Always measured in his assessments, Cleveland avoids lionizing and vilifying whether discussing the colonial experience, the rise of nationalism, the struggle for Palestine, the influence of Nasser or the Islamic resurgence."
Eugene Rogan, British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies

"With the accuracy and balance that the scholar would insist on and with the spirited readability that the student would hope for, this is a fine interpretive study of the Middle East during the past two centuries. A richly textured history, it handles the challenge of highlighting the cultural unity characterizing the Middle East while also demonstrating the region's diversity-political, religious, cultural, and economic."
L. Carl Brown, Princeton University

"Cleveland has written a cogent and comprehensive political history of the Middle East in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, prefaced by a concise and readable introduction to Islamic history. He is particularly successful in pointing to the persistence and strength of traditional modes of thought and belief in bringing about the reassertion of Islamic identity in the face of the moral bankruptcy of contemporary Middle Eastern regimes and the disempowering pressures of everyday life…this book should do much to demystify common misconceptions about this complex and frequently misunderstood region."
Peter Sluglett, Durham University

L'autore:

The late William L. Cleveland was professor of history at Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, Vancouver, British Columbia.
