This is the first comprehensive history and economic analysis of the Fertile Crescent during the 19th century, a region currently encompassing Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, and a small part of Turkey. Presenting 155 carefully selected documents--the majority drawn from British and French archives and here published for the first time, the balance translated from Arabic, French, German, Russian, Hebrew, Italian, and Turkish sources--Issawi provides an in-depth treatment of the economic life of the region, with chapters on social life and organization, trade, transport, agriculture, industry, and public and private finance. Including extensive cross-references that pinpoint the connections between the subjects discussed, the book is an invaluable resource on a historically rich and dynamic region.

About the Author:

Charles Issawi is at Princeton University.

Review:


"Issawi is the father of the Middle Eastern economic history....There is a wealth of new information contained in the introductions by Professor Issawi himself....His references also show that he has kept very well up-to-date with the most recent work in the field....The result, among many other things, is the most up-to-date bibliography of works on the recent economic history of the Middle East to be found anywhere."--Journal of Palestine Studies


"The construction and presentation of the economic history of the Middle East in a meaningful context for the political history of the region would be inconceivable without Issawi's pathbreaking studies....It is hard to imagine any study of the social and economic transformation of the Middle East in the modern era not benefiting from an examination of the documentation in this book and from the clear and valuable essays."--Middle East Journal


"It is a pleasure to salute Charles Issawi's pioneering role in the discovery and elucidation of the economic history of the Middle East in the 19th century, and to be able to commend the final volume of documents and analysis in this series [Studies in Middle Eastern History] with the same warmth as its predecessors. His achievement is immense and his scholarship exemplary."--Times Higher Education Supplement


"Will be extremely valuable to anyone involved in teaching or studying the economic history of the region....Issawi has written a fine, pioneering work."--Business History


"A wealth of historical information, data and ideas in this book which will delight students of the economic history of the Fertile Crescent."--BSOAS


"Another of Issawi's many unique contributions to scholarship of the Middle East. The volume is unique in helping to fill the gap in our knowledge of the economic history of the region, most notably for its emphasis on what has not been published before, its preference for what otherwise would not be accessible to scholars especially in English, and its clear, relatively long chapter introductions with well-classified documents."--CHOICE


"The author has done a great service by making this extensive selection available to English-speaking audiences....Such diverse treatment makes this volume an invaluable addition to the Middle Eastern specialist's library."--MESA Bulletin


"Once again Charles Issawi is to be congratulated for producing an eye-opening aid and work of reference."--BRISMES Bulletin
