The best-selling--and smartest--introduction to the history of the modern Middle East. Extensively revised and updated in this fifth edition, The Modern Middle East explores how the forces associated with global modernity have shaped the social, economic, cultural, and political life in the region over the course of the past years.

Beginning with the first glimmerings of the current international state and economic systems in the sixteenth century, this book examines the impact of imperial and imperialist legacies, the great nineteenth-century transformation, cultural continuities and upheavals, international diplomacy, economic booms and busts, and the emergence of authoritarian regimes and the varied forms of resistance to them and to imperialism in an area of vital concern to us all.

The text is engagingly written--drawing from the author's own research and other studies--and enriched with maps and photographs, original documents, and an abundance of supplementary materials. James L. It is comprehensive, lucid, nuanced, and up to date, but it is also a good read--very well written and entirely accessible to students and general readers alike.

I recommend it without hesitation to anyone who wants to acquire a solid understanding of the history of this region from the late Ottoman period onward, and it's a must-read for people who really want to make sense of what is going on in this region today. Its great virtue is that he lets readers in on the really exciting thing about this history--the debate over what has driven the region's dramatic developments.

He is also attentive to the history of social classes--beyond just the political elite--and to that of major social movements.

It is an essential text for our time. In a humorous and conversational style, it offers a substantial analytical and interpretive framework, not just a litany of dry facts that most students will likely forget after their exams. The book accomplishes two objectives at once: it teaches students how to think about history and it introduces them to many of the key issues of the modern Middle East. Through a lively, well-written narrative, Gelvin emphasizes that the Middle East today cannot be understood without looking at the social, economic, cultural, and political history of the region beginning in the seventeenth century.

The work also stresses that the history of the Middle East needs to be understood within the global context of the emergence of nation-states, the development of the global economy, and imperialism.

Students will benefit from the variety of methodologies used by the author and they will experience each era firsthand through well-chosen primary sources. Its real strength is its ability to render the region's complicated history accessible to a population of undergraduates, most of them born as the most recent spate of American wars in the region began. Its primary strengths include its breadth, its analytical investments and sharpness, and the simplicity and accessibility of its prose. Camron Micheal Amin, Benjamin C.
