A History of the Modern Middle East

Read a sample from the new edition.

“This excellent survey has been used in many colleges and universities as a standard text since its first edition…In this particularly turbulent period of history, this book should be of interest not only to students, but also to every citizen who has to make some judgment, one way or another, about the US role in the Middle East.”

A Concise History of the Middle East

An introduction to the history of this turbulent region from the beginnings of Islam to the present day, this widely acclaimed text by Arthur Goldschmidt Jr. is distinguished by its clear style, broad scope, and balanced treatment. A Concise History of the Middle East explores the evolution of Islamic institutions and culture, the influence of the West, the modernization efforts of Middle Eastern governments, the struggle of various peoples for political independence, the Arab–Israeli conflict, the reassertion of Islamic values and power, the issues surrounding the Palestinian Question, and the post-9/11 Middle East.

The Government and Politics of the Middle East and North Africa

Read a sample from the new edition.

“The coverage is broad and systematic. The individual treatments are always lucid and well informed. … The authors have succeeded in highlighting those facts of long histories which are most relevant to those who are present- and policy-oriented. The book as a whole is an excellent summing up of the politics of the Middle East … one which serves as an introduction to the beginner and as a reference and point of departure for the specialist.”

The Arab Spring

Read a sample from the new edition.

“The best general book on the Arab Spring. Covers all the ground. Makes all the necessary distinctions between the popular uprisings. And draws many useful lessons.”
—Roger Owen, Harvard University

The second edition includes a new chapter on Iraq and coverage of developments in the region since 2012 and how they have altered initial assessments of the Arab Spring’s effects. New part introductions and a revised concluding chapter provide contextualization and comparative analyses of key themes and broader questions. This is an essential volume for students and scholars seeking the fullest understanding of how the Arab uprisings continue to impact the region and the world.
