Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The sixth edition of Arthur Goldschmidt's widely acclaimed text has been extensively revised to reflect the latest scholarship and the most recent events in the Middle East, including an updated concluding chapter on events since Rabin's assassination. As an introduction to the history of this turbulent region from the beginnings of Islam to the present day, the book is distinguished by its clear style, broad scope, and balanced treatment. Written for college students, the text assumes no prior knowledge of Middle Eastern history. It focuses on 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 course of the Arab-Israeli conflict, the reassertion of Islamic values and power, the aftermath of the Gulf War, and issues surrounding the Palestinian Question.

Review:

"An examination of the growth of different cultural and national roots in the region, examining both the roots of conflict and bitterness and local struggles for independence and recognition. The result is a lively, involving text." Midwest Book Review

Review:

"Well organized...Straightforward and easy to follow....Designed to help the student acquire a basic understanding of Middle East history from the 7th century until the present." Choice

Review:

"An invaluable introduction and a useful reference book for the nonspecialist." Journal of Palestine Studies

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 405-426) and index.
