9780863567421: Concise History of the Arabs
Críticas:

'Concise, brilliant and erudite' Patrick Seale, author of Asad: The Struggle for the Middle East 'A lucid and highly readable history of the Arab peoples up to the present day.' Charles Tripp, author of The Power and the People: Paths of Resistance in the Middle East 'Thrilling and poignant ... an effortless read' David Gardner, Financial Times 'A well-written introduction to the Arab world, from a stimulating original perspective.' Gilbert Achcar, author of The Arabs and the Holocaust, and The People Want. 'Vivid and engaging - invaluable for those seeking to understand the depth and complexity of the contemporary issues in the Arab world.' Joy Gordon, author of Invisible War: The United States and the Iraq Sanctions 'Purposeful, insightful and tremendously useful, complete with an excellent bibliographic essay.' Kirkus 'Highly readable - Ideal for novices, it is also a useful and exciting read for those who have read much about the area but never had the whole story summed up in a single volume.' Jordan Times '[An] elegant work of history - It is an introductory history for newcomers to the field, but it still manages to take up some of the most significant debates without making them banal. This combination makes this book one of the more recommendable introductions to Arab history.' Journal of Peace Research 'Timely - McHugo succeeds in producing a clear, elegant and fully-sourced account of the sweep of Arab history from the birth of Muhammad in around 570 AD to the military coup in July 2013 that overthrew the Muslim Brotherhood government of Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi. ... The value of McHugo's book is enhanced by the richness of its references and fullness of its bibliography. He also has a section for those who are new to the history of the Arabs, giving pointers as to how they can begin to explore further the matters covered by his book.' Susannah Tarbush, The Tanjara

Reseña del editor:

The key to understanding the Arab world today - and in the future - is unlocking its past. In this sweeping and fluent account, John McHugo narrates a journey through the political, social and intellectual history of the Arabs from the Roman Empire right up to the present day. Taking readers beyond the headlines, he describes in vivid detail a series of turning points in Arab history - from the mission of the Prophet Muhammad and the expansion of Islam to the region's interaction with Western ideas and the rise of Islamism. This lucidly told history reveals how the Arab world came to have its present form, why change was inevitable, and a spectrum of possibilities following the Arab uprisings. At a time of radical change and deep uncertainty throughout the Arab world, here is a highly informed and accessible account - the perfect entry point for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of what has come and what lies ahead.
