A History

Description

To American observers, the Arab world often seems little more than a distant battleground characterized by religious zealotry and political chaos. Years of tone-deaf US policies have left the region powerless to control its own destiny—playing into a longstanding sense of shame and impotence for a once-mighty people. In this definitive account, preeminent historian Eugene Rogan traces five centuries of Arab history, from the Ottoman conquests through the British and French colonial periods and up to the present age of unipolar American hegemony. The Arab world is now more acutely aware than ever of its own vulnerability, and this sense of subjection carries with it vast geopolitical consequences.
Drawing from Arab sources little known to Western readers, Rogan’s The Arabs will transform our understanding of the past, present, and future of one of the world’s most tumultuous regions.

A must-read for an understanding of the complexities of the Middle East today

Very well researched, written and enlightening read of the long term and current day struggles of the Middle East, and international community that must today come to grips with the dynamics that affect our world as a result. It is a constant lesson in life that you have to understand the history from which you come, to understand the present within which you live. This world suffers from the many sins of the colonialists, yet history is replete with examples of similar sins since the beginning of mankind (e.g., the history of the Roman Empire).
