Iran, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf I B TAURIS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Great Britain's decision to withdraw its forces from the Gulf was a turning point in the modern history of the Middle East. Now regional players had to find rules of common coexistence. With the US immersed in the Vietnam war and the Soviet Union pursuing a policy of caution, there was no world power waiting to succeed Britain. As a result, Gulf politics "went local". This book examines how Iran influenced efforts to reorder the Gulf's political landscape. Its central argument is that a better understanding of the new Gulf order can be achieved by emphasizing local concerns and the degree to which regional powers influenced the policy of external powers in those times.

Epicenter of Crisis MIT Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Epicenter of Crisis argues that six contiguous states epitomize the security challenges of a post-9/11, globalized, world: Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Characterized by a dramatically transforming Islam, ethnic conflict, civil war, failed states, and terrorism, this "new Middle East" is the epicenter of what some call an arc of crisis, stretching from the Balkans into Southeast Asia. The Epicenter of Crisis examines this geopolitically dynamic region, analyzing the changing role of Islam in these six critical countries, the dangers posed by potential failed states, and the evolving terrorist threat. The contributors, all specialists in Middle East or foreign policy, address such crucial issues as the relationship between the Saudi royal family and Al Quaeda, Syria's waning influence over Hizbollah, media coverage of the war in Iraq, a new U.S. strategy for dealing with Iran, Afghanistan's opium industry, and the effectiveness of U.S. multi-billion-dollar assistance to Pakistan. The Epicenter of Crisis challenges readers to reconceptualize the boundaries of the Middle East in a changed world. ContributorsJohn R.

Syrian Conflagration - 2826746329

Syrian Conflagration Helion & Company

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Syrian Civil War, (the colloquial name of the ongoing conflict in Syria), has experienced an entirely unexpected transformation during its first two years. It started as unrest within the Syrian population and a series of mass demonstrations within the context of wider protest movements in the Middle East and North Africa in 2011, known as the Arab Spring. Contrary to events in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Yemen, where oppressive governments were toppled by the end of that year, the government of Syria deployed the full force of its military, its intelligence apparatus, and para-military groups, launching an unprecedented crackdown that resulted in the arrest, detention and killing of many thousands. Despite its brutality, this effort back-fired: it provoked mass desertions of the Syrian military and then an armed uprising. The emerging insurgency was generally successful through 2012, although failing to capture Damascus, it did secure more than half of Aleppo and Homs, the provincial capital of Raqqa, and nearly all of north-eastern and north-western Syria under its control. Although propped-up by economic and military support from the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Russian Federation, the government of Syria was nearing the brink of collapse during the first half of 2013 when, prompted by Tehran, the Hezbollah - a Shi'a Islamic militant group (and political party) from Lebanon - entered the conflict on its side. Soon after, the Hezbollah was reinforced by significant contingents of Iranian-sponsored Shi'a from Iraq, Lebanon and elsewhere, and then by volunteers from Iran, including crack units of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. Meanwhile, already split along the lines of Syria's complex demography, much of the insurgency transformed from a secular and non-sectarian movement into proxies of various foreign powers, foremost Saudi Arabia and Qatar, but also Turkey and Kuwait. Furthermore, foreign Jihadists motivated by al-Qaida joined the fray, aiming to establish an Islamist state and clandestinely cooperating with the government, they fell into the back of insurgency. Thus, an extremely complex conflict - which meanwhile not only spilled over the border into Lebanon, but is having a major impact upon Iranian-Saudi relations, and relations between the West, Iran and a number of Arab countries - came into being, the outcome of which is presently anything but predictable. Syrian Conflagration is the first instalment in the Middle East@War series. Drawing on extensive research, including first hand accounts it provides a compelling overview of the first three years of the ongoing conflict in Syria. The book features around 120 photos, 12-15 artworks and 3-4 maps. Middle East@War - following on from our highly-successful Africa@War series, Middle East@War replicates the same format - concise, incisive text, rare images and high quality colour artwork providing fresh accounts of both well-known and more esoteric aspects of conflict in this part of the world since 1945.

From Postmodern to Postsecularism Clarity Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Arab Spring is really an Islamic one and the logical result of a century and a half of imperialist intrigues to incorporate the Middle East and Central Asia into the imperial project. How did this come about? What are the chances of the Muslim world asserting an independent position in the face of American empire and the rising non-imperial world bloc? This book views Islam as a way of life as opposed to western post-Enlightenment secularism where the separation of church and state shunts religion off to the periphery of modern life. It reviews and critiques the long historical rivalry between Islam and Christianity/ Judaism that has resulted in a distorted understanding of Islam in the West, and also how Islam views the West. All the monotheisms have a linear concept of time/ history, which in the case of Christianity/ Judaism led logically to capitalism, Marx and the communist apocalypse. The Islamic project contains its own socioeconomic solution which prevented the rise of capitalism/ imperialism, making it the loser in technology race of 19th-20th cc. Walberg provides an overview of imperialism and colonialism in the Muslim world, recapping his thesis in Postmodern Imperialism (Chinese edition to be released by Nankei University Press), of the historical movement in the first "great Games" (ex-Ottoman Levant and Raj/ Afghanistan/ Iran under British empire) through the second and third (colour revolutions vs revival of Islamic vision of Caliphate to replace imperialism). The Islamic reform traditions from the 19th century on (deriving from Al-Afghani, Qutb) incorporating the Islamic critique of the West is addressed as well as the Sunni/ Shia, mainstream/ Sufi/ Salafi divisions. The 20th century experience of Islamic states (Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran) will be reviewed, as well as the current dynamics of the Muslim world (Saudi, Iran, Qatar, Turkey, and now Egypt/ Tunisia/ Libya). Finally, Walberg considers the effects of developments in the Muslim world on western political events, which are increasingly inspired by the Middle East, including the BDS movement.

Poverty and prosperity, fear and fun, mistakes, corruption, incompetence, language and cultural glitches, and developmental successes-the author recounts his government service on six continents in a 34-year career. Take one Pennsylvania-born, university-trained development economist, mix with the people, problems, and opportunities of 43 countries, stir in a variety of U.S. government programs, and you can learn a lot. Howard Steele certainly did, and survived gun-toting Bolivian revolutionaries, Viet Cong mortar and rifle fire, deadly anarchy in Sri Lanka, a shakedown by Tanzanian police, Taiwanese cockroaches the size of kittens, and sheep's eye stew in Saudi Arabia. Marriage survival was more difficult. As Steele advanced from midlevel technician to a senior rank U.S. representative, he at times had to battle his own government and navigate its bureaucracy, just as he did with dozens of overseas regimes and their national cultures. From Brazil, just after its 1964 revolution, to Switzerland in 1995-with assignments in South Vietnam, Guatemala, Bolivia, Honduras, Costa Rica, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Nepal, among numerous others along the way-Steele recounts his service on six continents in a 34-year career. He tells it as it happened, no partisan spin, all authentic, on-the-scene detail. Poverty and prosperity, fear and fun, mistakes, corruption, incompetence, language and cultural glitches, and developmental successes are all here.

The 1979 (or second) oil crisis in the United States occurred in the wake of the Iranian Revolution. Amid massive protests, the Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, fled his country in early 1979, allowing the Ayatollah Khomeini to gain control. The protests shattered the Iranian oil sector. While the new regime resumed oil exports, it was inconsistent and at a lower volume, forcing prices to go up. Saudi Arabia and other OPEC nations, under the presidency of Dr. Mana Alotaiba increased production to offset the decline, and the overall loss in production was about 4 percent. However, a widespread panic resulted, driving the price far higher than would be expected under normal circumstances. In 1980, following the Iraqi invasion of Iran, oil production in Iran nearly stopped, and Iraq's oil production was severely cut as well. After 1980, oil prices began a six-year decline that culminated with a 46 percent price drop in 1986. This was due to reduced demand and over-production, which caused OPEC to lose its unity. Oil exporters such as Mexico, Nigeria, and Venezuela expanded production.

Historia Iraku Książka i Wiedza

Historia świata

By zrozumieć Irak, trzeba przeczytać książkę Charlesa Trippa. Już od pierwszego wydania w 2000 r. stała się klasyczną pozycją w dziedzinie studiów bliskowschodnich, wysoko ocenianą przez studentów, wojskowych, polityków i dziennikarzy. Obecne uzupełnione wydanie uwzględnia ostatnią inwazję amerykańską na Irak, upadek i uwięzienie Saddama Husajna, a także konflikty wewnętrzne, które ogarnęły ten kraj. Można się również przekonać, że to, co nastąpiło po 2003 r., pokrywa się w większości z analizami zawartymi w książce. Tripp stawia tezę, że na obecną sytuacją Iraku złożyły się wszystkie wydarzenia w tym kraju  w XX w., proponuje też  alternatywne wizje przyszłości. Bez właściwego zrozumienia poruszonych w książce problemów - takich jak relacje patron-klient, przemoc zorganizowana, różnice sekciarskie, etniczne i plemienne - będą one nadal wpływały na przyszłość Iraku, tak jak to się działo w przeszłości. Charles Tripp jest profesorem bliskowschodnich studiów politycznych w Wyższej Szkole Studiów Orientalnych i Afrykańskich Uniwersytetu Londyńskiego. Opublikował między innymi: Islam and the Moral Economy: The Challenge of Capitalism (2006), Iran-Saudi Arabia Relations and Regional Order (z S. Chubinem, 1996), a także Iran and Iraq at War (1988).

It spurred him to begin a journey through the Islamic world that would last seven years. The photographs published here are the final result of that project. Born in Iran, Abbas casts a sharp eye over a world seen by very few from the West until now. Seeking out people and places that have been overlooked by others, he reveals far more - and in greater depth - than photojournalists who focus on flashpoints or who race to break the latest news. Abbas is acclaimed for his special ability to freeze a moment in a particular social or political conflict, to frame actions or gestures that instantly become emblematic: what he calls

Arab Uprising - 2848952085

Arab Uprising Perseus Books Group

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Barely a year after the self-immolation of a young fruit seller in Tunisia, a vast wave of popular protest has convulsed the Middle East, overthrowing long-ruling dictators and transforming the region's politics almost beyond recognition. But the biggest transformations of what has been labeled as the "Arab Spring" are yet to come. An insider to both American policy and the world of the Arab public, Marc Lynch shows that the fall of particular leaders is but the least of the changes that will emerge from months of unrest. The far-ranging implications of the rise of an interconnected and newly-empowered Arab populace have only begun to be felt. Young, frustrated Arabs now know that protest can work and that change is possible. They have lost their fear-meanwhile their leaders, desperate to survive, have heard the unprecedented message that killing their own people will no longer keep them in power. Even so, as Lynch reminds us, the last wave of region-wide protest in the 1950s and 1960s resulted not in democracy, but in brutal autocracy. Will the Arab world's struggle for change succeed in building open societies? Will authoritarian regimes regain their grip, or will Islamist movements seize the initiative to impose a new kind of rule? The Arab Uprising follows these struggles from Tunisia and Egypt to the harsh battles of Yemen, Bahrain, Syria, and Libya and to the cautious reforms of the region's monarchies. It examines the real meaning of the rise of Islamist movements in the emerging democracies, and the longterm hopes of a generation of activists confronted with the limits of their power. It points toward a striking change in the hierarchy of influence, as the old heavyweights-Iran, Al Qaeda, even Israel-have been all but left out while oil-rich powers like Saudi Arabia and "swing states" like Turkey and Qatar find new opportunities to spread their influence. And it reveals how America must adjust to the new realities. Deeply informed by inside access to the Obama administration's decision-making process and first-hand interviews with protestors, politicians, diplomats, and journalists, The Arab Uprising highlights the new fault lines that are forming between forces of revolution and counter-revolution, and shows what it all means for the future of American policy. The result is an indispensible guide to the changing lay of the land in the Middle East and North Africa.

Excerpt: The word "hijab" or "" (Arabic: hijaab, pronounced ~ ) refers to both the head covering traditionally worn by Muslim women and modest Muslim styles of dress in general. The Arabic word literally means curtain or cover (noun). Most Islamic legal systems define this type of modest dressing as covering everything except the face and hands in public. According to Islamic scholarship, hijab is given the wider meaning of modesty, privacy, and morality; the words for a headscarf or veil used in the Qur'an are khimar () and Jilbaab(), not hijab. Still another definition is metaphysical, where al-hijab refers to "the veil which separates man or the world from God." Muslims differ as to whether the hijab should be required on women in public, as it is in countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia; whether it should be banned in schools, as it is in France and Turkey; or whether it should be left for the women to decide. According to the Encyclopedia of Islam and the Muslim World, the meaning of hijab has evolved over time: The Qur'an instructs both Muslim men and women to dress in a modest way. The clearest verse on the requirement of the hijab is surah 24:30-31, asking women to draw their khimar over their bosoms. In the following verse, Muslim women are asked to draw their jilbab over them (when they go out), as a measure to distinguish themselves from others, so that they are not harassed. Surah 33:59 reads: Women's head scarves for sale in East JerusalemOther Muslims take a relativist approach to hijab. They believe that the commandment to maintain modesty must be interpreted with regard to the surrounding society. What is considered modest or daring in one society may not be considered so in another. It is important, they say, for believers to wear clothing that communicates modesty and reserve in the situations in which they find themselves. Along with scriptural arguments, Leila Ahmed argues that head covering should not be compulsory in Islam because the veil predates the r
