The Arabs : A History – Second Edition


‘Anyone who seeks to understand why the Islamic world bears a grudge against the West should read The Arabs.’ Sir Alaistair Horne’A rich, galloping narrative that spans the Arab world…outstanding, gripping and exuberant…full of flamboyant character sketches, witty asides and magisterial scholarship, that explains much of what we need to know about the world today’ Simon Sebag MontefioreEugene Rogan has written an authoritative new history of the Arabs in the modern world. Starting with the Ottoman conquests in the sixteenth century, this landmark book follows the story of the Arabs through the era of European imperialism and the Superpower rivalries of the Cold War, to the present age of unipolar American power. Drawing on the writings and eyewitness accounts of those who lived through the tumultuous years of Arab history, The Arabs balances different voices – politicians, intellectuals, students, men and women, poets and novelists, famous, infamous and the completely unknown – to give a rich, complex sense of life over nearly five centuries.Rogan’s book is remarkable for its geographical sweep, covering the Arab world from North Africa through the Arabian Peninsula, and for the depth in which it explores every facet of modern Arab history.
