Eugene 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. This multilayered, fascinating and definitive work is the essential guide to understanding the history of the modern Arab world - and its future.
Very good condition. Other than a couple of marks on the front and bumping to the spine, the green cloth boards are undamaged. Internally the pages are unmarked with bright type and the binding is tight. The dust wrapper is in good condition. It shows some damage particularly at the corners with most wear and tear at the head and tail of the spine (see photos).
