Description du produit

Revue de presse

“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 extensive and lucid book provides a laudable introduction to the political history of the Middle East, tracing its development from Islam's rise in the seventh century to the recent direct American military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. . . . Does a commendable job in linking historical events in fluid, logical narrative sequences that help readers unfamiliar with the Middle East connect the events."
—American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences

“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

Présentation de l'éditeur

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 American invasion of Iraq and Iran’s new influence in the region. 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 fourth edition of the late William Cleveland’s popular introductory text, Martin Bunton addresses recent transformative developments in the Middle East, charting the decline in the peace prospects between Israelis and Palestinians, elaborating upon the resurgence of Islam, and devoting a new chapter to “America’s Troubled Moment in the Middle East,” which details the aftermath of the Iraq war and Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

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 ?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 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
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.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Best ME history book out there, but it is very dry 23 septembre 2015
Par Magru - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a wonderful and complete history of the Middle East. If you want to understand what is happening in the region now, there is no other book that I would recommend more. However, this one is a slow, densely written pure history book. I am pretty sure it is assigned at the college level in ME history classes, so expect that level of dry historical tone. Extremely helpful, but not the most exciting to read.

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.

In this book i found a new focus from which to look at the history of the peoples of the middle east. It is not an eurocentric focus and this helps to understand the reasons of the others.
