Syrian Rebellion (Herbert and Jane Dwight Working Group on Islamism and the International Order)
Tadros raises long unanswered questions about those revolutionaries: Who were they and where did they come from? What was their ideological and organizational composition? Why were they angry with the Mubarak regime? What were their demands and aspirations for a new Egypt?

And how did they attempt to achieve them? Berman explains how the US withdrawal from the Middle East could have long-term consequences, as other forces come forward to fill the gap.
He details how the retreat began and how the reduction of the US commitment has, in turn, set off a wave of repercussions. Berman analyzes what motivates such a retreat, how much it is a choice of the Obama administration, and how much it is rooted in US cultural leanings that could outlast the administration. In Retreat warns not only about changing evaluations about this specific corner of the globe but also about predispositions to retreat from politics altogether, from the burden of leadership, and from the advocacy for democracy"--Publisher's description.

Although those Christians are leaving their homelands in record numbers, the author laments, the powers of the West have shown little interest in their fate. Syria, Iran, and Hezbollah : the unholy alliance and its war on Lebanon by Marius Deeb 2 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Marius Deeb, an Oxford-educated authority on Middle Eastern politics and history, in a sequel to his authoritative Syria's Terrorist War on Lebanon and the Peace Process, shows how the Syria, Iran, and Hezbollah axis has tried, through assassination, terrorism and force, to undermine Lebanon's Cedar Revolution that triumphed in March The Cedar Revolution began in September as a protest movement led by Patriarch Sfair, the head of the Maronite Catholic Church, and culminated on March 14, , when 1.
No wonder that the Syria, Iran and Hezbollah axis has regarded the Cedar Revolution as its implacable enemy, for the Cedar Revolution is the antithesis of the Islamic revolution in Iran that demonized America and opened the floodgates of terrorism. In contrast, the Cedar Revolution is a nonviolent, democratic, and pro-Western revolution and thus an antidote to militant Islam and terrorism.

The book traces the origins of key trends in recent Iraqi history to explain the political and social forces that produced them, particularly during the intense period of civil war between and Along the way, the author looks at some of the most significant players in the new Iraq, explaining how they have risen to prominence and what their aims are. The author identifies the three trends that dominate Iraq's post-U. He concludes by examining some aspects of the U. America and the future of war : the past as prologue by Williamson Murray 2 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Williamson Murray examines the past to shed light on the present and future challenges between war and peace.
The author offers a historical perspective to show that armed conflict between organized political groups has been mankind's constant companion and that America must remain prepared to use its military power to deal with an unstable, uncertain, and fractious world. The character of war appears to be changing at an increasingly rapid pace with the scientific advances providing new and more complex weapons, means of production, communications, and sensors, all capable of altering the character of the battle space in an unexpected fashion.
Murray warns that our responsibility as a great power demands that we recognize the nature of the world; where force. The end of modern history in the Middle East by Bernard Lewis Book 5 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide The author examines in detail the issues most critical to the region's future. He describes oil as the current, most important export to the outside world from the Middle East but warns that technology will eventually make it obsolete, leaving those who depend solely on oil revenues with a bleak future.
The three factors that could most help transform the Middle East, according to Lewis, are Turkey, Israel, and women. He also argues that there is enough in the traditional culture of Islam on the one hand and the modern experience of the Muslim peoples on the other to provide the basis for an advance toward freedom in the true sense of that word and to achieve the social, cultural, and scientific changes necessary to bring the Middle East into line with the developed countries of both West and East.

Motherland lost : the Egyptian and Coptic quest for modernity by Samuel Tadros Book 2 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "In Motherland Lost, Samuel Tadros provides a clear understanding of the Copts--the native Egyptian Christians--and their crisis of modernity in conjunction with the overall developments in Egypt as it faced its own struggles with modernity. He argues against the dominating narratives that have up to now shaped our understanding of the Coptic predicament--their eternal persecution, from the Roman and Byzantine emperors to the rule of Islam, and the National Unity discourse--asserting rather that it is due to the crisis of modernity.
Linking the Egyptian and Coptic stories, the book argues that the plight of Copts today is inseparable from the crisis of modernity and the answers developed to address that crisis by the Egyptian state and intellectuals, as well as by the Coptic Church and laypeople. The author asserts that the answers developed by Egyptian intellectuals and state modernizers to the challenge modernity poses revolved around the problem of Islam. The Copts, then, although affected, like their fellow Egyptians, by the challenge of modernity, were faced with a separate crisis: a specific challenge to their ancient church and the need for a new orientation and revival to be able to deal with modernity and its discontents.
Tadros concludes that the prospects for Copts in Egypt appear bleak and are leading to a massive Coptic exodus from Egypt. Syria through jihadist eyes : a perfect enemy by Nibras Kazimi Book 4 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide The regime in Syria is in league with theocrats in Iran, facilitating their access to Lebanon and to Palestinian territories, but hints that it is open to accommodation with Israel and for a strategic bargain with the United States.
In Syria through Jihadist Eyes, Nibras Kazimi challenges that country's presumed readiness for peace and normalcy.
With field notes accumulated in a Syrian environment not generally hospitable to research and inquiry, Kazimi provides a unique view of Syrian regime and its base at home, filling a void in our understanding of the intelligence barons and soldiers who run that country.
He offers a look at tactical, propagandist, and strategic ingredients required, in jihadist eyes, for a successful jihad and whether those ingredients are available in Syria. Kazimi assesses how sectarianism and the global jihadist interest in taking the battle to Syria could derail policy overtures from Washington aimed at normalizing relations with the Asad regime.
Jihad in Syria makes strategic sense for jihadists, he concludes--Publisher's description. In this Arab time : the pursuit of deliverance by Fouad Ajami Book 1 edition published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "In this collection of bold and wide-ranging essays, Fouad Ajami offers his views on the Middle East, commenting on the state of affairs in Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Egypt, as well as providing historical perspectives on Algeria and Spain.

Saudi Arabia and the new strategic landscape by Joshua Teitelbaum Book 5 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide In the new post-cold war strategic landscape of the Middle East, the United States' most important Arab ally, Saudi Arabia, plays a key role. The will and the resources of Saudi Arabia are badly needed if the Iranian menace is to have a worthwhile regional challenger. Joshua Teitelbaum has studied Saudi Arabia, following the twists of its history and its strategic choices, throughout his academic career.
In this work, he evaluates Saudi foreign policy in the Persian Gulf and in the Arab-Israeli peace process and provides a shrewd assessment of the Saudi-U. Teitelbaum debunks the traditional view of Saudi foreign policy that emphasizes the Saudi concern with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and explains how the true concern of Arabia's rulers is the ideological battle that has been opened up by Iran's push into Arab affairs.

Focusing on the similarities and the differences in skills between former dictator Hafez al-Assad and his successor son, Bashar, Ajami explains how an irresistible force clashed with an immovable object: the regime versus people who conquered fear to challenge a despot of unspeakable cruelty. Although the people at first hoped that Bashar would open up the prison that Syria had become under his father, it was not to be - and rebellion soon followed.
Offering a detailed historical perspective, Ajami shows how, for four long decades, the Assad dynasty, the intelligence barons, and the brigade commanders had grown accustomed to a culture of quiescence and silence.
