Revue de presse
—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
—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.

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.
