              Atlas of Islamic History

              Atlas of Islamic History (Paperback)

              By Sluglett, Peter; Currie, Andrew

              This Atlas provides the main outlines of Islamic history from the immediately pre-Islamic period until and endpoint of c. 1914, that is, before most parts of the Muslim world became sovereign nation states. It is primarily concerned with political and dynastic change across the g...lobe over 15 centuries. Each map is accompanied by a text that contextualises, explains, and enlarges upon the map, and all the maps are fully cross-referenced. All the maps are in full colour: 17 of them are double-page spreads, and 27 are single page layouts. This is an atlas of Islamic, not simply Arab or Middle Eastern history; hence it covers the entire Muslim world, including Spain, North, West and East Africa, the Indian sub-continent, Central Asia and South-East Asia. The maps are not static, in that they show transitions within the historical period to which they refer: for instance, the stages of the three contemporaneous Umayyad, Fatimid and 'Abbasid caliphates on Map 10, or the progress of the Mongol invasions and the formation of the various separate Mongol khanates between 1200 and 1300 on Map 21. Using the most up to date cartographic and innovative design techniques, the maps break new ground in illuminating the history of Islam. This atlas is intended to serve both as a work of reference and as a textbook for undergraduates.

              Writing The Modern History Of Iraq: Historiographical And Political Challenges
                

              Writing The Modern History Of Iraq: Historiographical And Political Challenges (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The modern history of Iraq is punctuated by a series of successive and radical ruptures (coups d'etat, changes of regime, military adventures and foreign invasions) whose chronological markers are relatively easy to identify. Although researchers cannot ignore these ruptures, the...y should also be encouraged to establish links between the moments when the breaks occur and the longue durée, in order to gain a better understanding of the period.Combining a variety of different disciplinary and methodological perspectives, this collection of essays seeks to establish some new markers which will open fresh perspectives on the history of Iraq in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and suggest a narrative that fits into new paradigms. The book covers the various different periods of the modern state (the British occupation and mandate, the monarchy, the first revolutions and the decades of Ba'thist rule) through the lens of significant groups in Iraq society, including artists, film-makers, political and opposition groups, members of ethnic and religious groups, and tribes.

              Violent Radical Movements in the Arab World: The Ideology and Politics of Non-State Actors (Paperback)

              Violent non-state actors have become almost endemic to political movements in the Middle East and the Horn of Africa. This book examines why they play such a key role and the different ways in which they have developed. Placing them in the context of the region, separate chapters... cover the organizations that are currently active, including: The Muslim Brotherhood, The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Jabhat al-Nusra, Hamas, Hizbullah, the PKK, al-Shabab and the Huthis. The book shows that while these groups are a new phenomenon, they also relate to other key factors including the `unfinished business' of the colonial and postcolonial eras and tacit encouragement of the Wahhabi/Salafi/jihadi da`wa by some regional powers. Their diversity means violent non-state actors elude simple classification, ranging from `national' and `transnational' to religious and political movements. However, by examining their origins, their supporters and their motivations, this book helps explain their ubiquity in the region.
