Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here returned to print, at a timely moment in history, is Elie Kedourie's classic study of the Middle East in modern times. In analyzing British failures in the region during the zenith of their power and influence, Mr. Kedourie attributes much of Britain's faulty and disastrous handling of Middle East problems to what he calls the Chatham House version. It was a view of Middle Eastern history and politics propounded and propagated in the various publications of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (known popularly as Chatham House), written or edited by Arnold Toynbee. The episodes that Mr. Kedourie investigates show successive and cumulative manifestations of illusion, misjudgment, maladroitness, and failure. Together they point up hard lessons for the Bush administration or any outside power that would intervene in Middle Eastern affairs. No better guide...can be found to the pitfalls awaiting those who seek to control the Middle East to their own advantage. Asian Affairs These twelve studies in the modern history of the Middle East form] the most learned book, the most demanding therefore of rethinking, that has come out on the Middle East for many years, and anyone who in the future writes on any Middle Eastern subject, from any point of view, without consulting it, will do so at his or her grave peril. London Telegraph

Book News Annotation:

British scholar of the Middle East Kedourie (1926-92) assembled and in most cases enlarged 12 articles originally published in various academic journals. They relate to the first half of the 20th century, when British influence in the region was at its zenith. The 1970 edition was either revised or reprinted in 1984; David Pryce-Jones provides an introduction to the 2004 edition.
