Book Description

Paperback: 592 pages Publisher: Westview Press; 2nd edition (November 1, 1999) Language: English ISBN: 0813334896 Product Dimensions: 9.2 x 6.0 x 1.2 inches The Middle East is such a multi-faced region with such a rich historical legacy that even people who strive to be well-informed cannot help but feel bewildered at its cultural, political, and religious complexity. Given the blustering aggressiveness of the post-September 11 U.S. policy toward the region, however, Americans owe it to themselves to become far more familiar with the complexities of the Middle East than has been our wont up to now. Popular magazine articles that attempt to "explain" Islamic rage as the result of a "fear of modernity" or "jealousy of the west's freedoms" may as well bear a stamp proclaiming their authorship by the "Ministry of Propaganda." As an alternative, I recommend Professor Cleveland's textbook, which serves as a brief but remarkably thorough introduction to the history of this volatile part of the world. No, the book does not cover Afghanistan or Pakistan, but clearly political currents in these nations are closely linked with what has transpired in Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, and the rest of the Middle East proper. At the heart of the current crisis is, of course, the Israeli-Palestinian condundrum, and here the author's explanations and analyses are clear, balanced, and incisive. His discussions of the evolution of Saddam Hussein's Iraq and the background *and consequences* of the 1991 Gulf War are also invaluable. In his recounting of the Iranian revolution, Cleveland offers a fascinating analysis of the apparent Islamicist rejection of "modernity," showing that those in the Middle East who reject the West do not crave a return to the ancient past, but instead wish to follow a modernization pathway that is guided by indigenous cultural principles, including the precepts of Islam. Perhaps most impressive, however, is what Cleveland has to say toward the end of the book regarding the dangers of an overly intrusive and domineering presence in the Islamic Middle East by the lone remaining planetary superpower, the U.S. He does not prophesy the recent terrorism that has afflicted this country, but he does criticize the U.S. for policies that seem to rely more upon aerial bombardment than careful diplomacy. The application of Cleveland's conclusions to a reevaluation of the likely long-term consequences of "America's new war" is not a comforting process, but it's one that perhaps more Americans need to undertake. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .


This comprehensive work provides an analysis of the last two centuries of Middle Eastern history, from the rise of the Safavids and Ottomans to the recent Gulf War. Explains the deep historical currents flowing beneath today's headlines--essential reading for anyone seeking a better understanding of today's turbulent world. Photos. Maps. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Jamais ennuyeuse, cette histoire du Moyen-Orient moderne commence avec la fondation de l'Islam et s'achève avec les suites de la guerre d'Irak. Les différentes fractures au sein du monde musulman, le rôle fondamental de l'Empire ottoman et l'influence de sa lente déliquescence, les réponses apportées dans différentes sociétés de la région y sont expliqués d'une façon claire.

En refermant le livre, j'avais et j'ai toujours l'impression que celui a changé ma vision de la région. Que demander de plus ?

An impressive and substantial work of seminal scholarship 10 mai 2009
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
America's military, financial, and cultural involvement with the Middle East is as on-going as it is problematic both in terms of suppressing attacks on America targets and our economic reliance on Middle Eastern petroleum resources. Yet before the emergence of a beligerant and violent Muslim extremism that led to attacks on the American homeland, most Americans know very little about the history and cultures that comprise this area of the world. Now in a newly revised and significantly updated fourth edition, "A History Of The Modern Middle East", co-authored by the late William L. Cleveland (who was a Professor of History at the Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) and Martin Bunton (who is an Associate Professor of History at the University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada), is a comprehensive historical overview of the region beginning with an insightful analysis of the Ottoman and Egyptian reforms through the rule of European colonialists, down to the American invasion and occupation of Iraq. This latest edition addresses the evolving developments of the past few decades that have transformed Middle Eastern societies and the consequent tensions between the forces of modernization and conservative cultural and religious ideological resistance. Of special note is the new chapter on "America's Troubled Moment in the Middle East" which focuses upon the aftermath of the Iraq war and Iranian nuclear ambitions. Informed and informative, "A History Of The Modern Middle East" is an impressive and substantial work of seminal scholarship. Accessibly written for both academia and the non-specialist general reader with an interest in the 20th and 21st century history of the Middle East, "A History Of The Modern Middle East" is a highly recommended addition for academic and community library World History collections and supplemental reading lists.

A Masterful, Easy to read 15 avril 2011
Par Rollaver - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a well-written, easy to read detailed history text on the Middle East through today's convoluted political situation, and how it got that way. One of the best texts I've read. Makes the Middle Eastern situation more understandable from the beginning, and walksyou through its progress to today. If you wonder about the Middle East, this text will help you sort it out.

A superb historical introduction 14 novembre 2010
Par JimR - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is the best all-around introduction to the modern history of the Middle East on the market today. It focuses on Egypt, Turkey, Iran, Arabia and the Fertile Crescent lands that lie in between -- including Iraq, Israel-Palestine, Lebanon, and Jordan. It is written in a clear, uncluttered style, it is well illustrated with maps and photographs, and it is regularly updated via new editions. The original author William Cleveland (RIP) and his successor Martin Bunton offer an engaging and critical narrative, with suggestions for additional reading for those who want more.

Warning, if you order the Large Print Edition you only get Volume 1 of 2 *Updated for content* 20 octobre 2012
Par Bob - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As another reviewer noted the description for the large print edition fails to mention that it is two volumes. They only send Volume 1 of 2 and there doesn't look like volume two is even available to order off of Amazon. Volume one only has the first 15 chapters of the book so if you're getting this for college, you can get started with this book but you won't be able to finish your course with it.

*Updated Dec 24, 2012

I re-ordered the regular print book and sent back the large print. I used this book for a college class on the Middle East. I found the book comprehensive. Yet as other reviews have noted it does have a biased against the West. It seemed like any atrocity committed against Middle Eastern countries by the West were described in detail. Yet any atrocities committed by Middle Eastern Countries against their own people were pointed out however the details were glazed over, and simply not discussed. One instance that I can point out is that the authors call the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait "annexation" rather than calling it an invasion. But the U.S. invasion of Iraq is deemed Western invasion and occupation in the midst of a Middle Eastern problem.
