9780132663397: The Middle East: Fourteen Islamic Centuries (3rd Edition)

Reflecting today's most recent findings, this enlightening book presents an even-handed survey of Middle Eastern history from the rise of Islam to the present day, beginning with a substantial account of the early centuries and then concentrating primarily on the modern, post-1914 decades. It provides concise, readable, and balanced coverage of Egypt, the Fertile Crescent, the Arabian Peninsula, Turkey, and Iran, and offers ten detailed maps and a useful bibliography of selected works to broaden readers' understanding. Deals with the whole Middle Eastern region within particular periods - rather than on a topical or country-by-country basis - allowing readers to see the events in each country at any point in relation to what is happening in other parts of the Middle East. Offers a world/historical perspective, emphasizing the relationship of the Middle East to other regions and civilizations, particularly with the West. Highlights from the Third Edition include a new section dealing with events from 1991 to 1996; an examination of the controversy over Orientalism; an updated bibliography; new glossary of terms (many relating specifically to Islam); and an appendix which fully explains the Pillars of Islam and Jihad. For historians, anthropologists, and those in business and government.

From the Publisher:

Revised to reflect today's most recent findings, this text presents an enlightening and even-handed survey of Middle Eastern history from the rise of Islam to the present day, beginning with a substantial account of the early centuries and then concentrating primarily on the modern, post-1914 decades.

From the Back Cover:

Emphasizing the modern period (i.e., post 1774), author Glenn E. Perry carefully balances coverage of Egypt, the Fertile Crescent, the Arabian Peninsula, Turkey, and Iran, and uses a world-historical approach that enables readers to understand the area in the context of world history. The Third Edition is organized around historical periods with each country dealt with during the particular period. It begins in pre-Islamic times and takes the story up to 1996, including yesterday's headlines such as the Oslo accord, Israeli raids on Lebanon, destruction of Kurdish villages in Turkey, and the accelerated growth of Islamist movements. In addition, ten detailed maps feature virtually all the places named in the text.
