The defiant border : the Afghan-Pakistan borderlands in the era of decolonization, 1936-1965
Leake, Elisabeth, author
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2017
Introduction: "A doughty & honorable opponent" -- "Using a Crowbar to Swat Wasps" : The Frontier Tribal Area in Imperial Defense -- The "Opening of Sluice Gates" : Plan Partition and the Frontier -- "We are One People and Ours is a Land" : The Demand for Pashtunistan, 1948-1952 -- A "Friendly Point of Return" : Pakistan and the Global Cold War -- An "Eye for an Eye" : Mohammad Ayub Khan and the Collapse of Regional Relations -- Conclusion: "Religion, Land, Lineage, and Honour" : The Afghan-Pakistan Borderlands Then and Now.

"The Defiant Border explores why the Afghan-Pakistan borderlands have remained largely independent of state controls from the colonial period into the twenty-first century. This book looks at local Pashtun tribes' modes for evading first British colonial, then Pakistani, governance; the ongoing border dispute between Pakistan and Afghanistan; and continuing interest in the region from Indian, US, British, and Soviet actors. It reveals active attempts first by British, then by Pakistani, agents to integrate the tribal region, ranging from development initiatives to violent suppression. The Defiant Border also considers the area's influence on relations between Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India, as well as its role in the United States' increasingly global Cold War policies. Ultimately, the book considers how a region so peripheral to major centers of power has had such an impact on political choices throughout the eras of empire, decolonization, and superpower competition, up to the so-called 'War on Terror.' One of the only historical studies of Pakistan's Pashtun tribal area (post-1947), which complements existing anthropological literature on the region and histories of the colonial era to provide readers with a fuller understanding of the region. Integrates histories of South Asia, decolonization, and the global Cold War, which provides readers with a holistic view of the region by recognizing the interconnections between international diplomacy, regional developments, subaltern movements, and colonial legacies. Considers the impact of non-state actors--Pashtun tribes--on South Asian state-building, which complements work done on state-building in India, extends understanding of the impact of peripheral areas on state power and practice, and expands understanding of the history of Pakistan"--From publisher's website.

Bayly -- The autumn of the Nahda in light of the Arab Spring : some figures in the carpet / Leyla Dakhli -- Epilogue: The Legacies of Arabic Thought in the Liberal Age / Rashid Khalidi.

"What is the relationship between thought and practice in the domains of language, literature and politics? Is thought the only standard by which to measure intellectual history? How did Arab intellectuals change and affect political, social, cultural and economic developments from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries? This volume offers a fundamental overhaul and revival of modern Arab intellectual history. Using Hourani's Arabic Thought in the Liberal Age, 1798-1939 (Cambridge, 1962) as a starting point, it reassesses Arabic cultural production and political thought in the light of current scholarship and extends the analysis beyond Napoleon's invasion of Egypt and the outbreak of World War II. The chapters offer a mixture of broad-stroke history on the construction of 'the Muslim world,' and the emergence of the rule of law and constitutionalism in the Ottoman empire, as well as case studies on individual Arab intellectuals that illuminate the transformation of modern Arabic thought"--

Nehemiah : statesman and sage
Zakheim, Dov S., author
New Milford, CT : Maggid, [2016]
"Jewish history recognizes Nehemiah as one of the founding fathers of the Second Commonwealth, when the Second Temple stood in Jerusalem. A statesman, politician, and lay religious administrator, Nehemiah aimed to strengthen national security, foster diplomatic relations with neighboring states, and establish social and religious order in the ancient Jewish society. In Nehemiah: Statesman and Sage, Dov Zakheim, a former senior official in the US government, examines the life of the biblical figure through the lens of modern experience. Zakheim mines the biblical Book of Nehemiah to present a political biography of a man who rose to the highest levels of the Persian court, dedicating his life to the welfare of the Jewish people. Utilizing a unique collection of traditional and scholarly sources, Zakheim reveals how Nehemiah confronted fundamental issues of his day, highlighting lessons for policy-makers today."--Back cover.

Israel in the 1973 Yom Kippur War : diplomacy, battle, and lessons
Rodman, David, author
Chicago ; Sussex Academic Press, [2017]
The American-Israeli relationship -- The Israeli-Jordanian relationship -- Nuclear arms, deterrence, and compellence -- Israeli combined arms warfare -- Israeli resurgence on the Golan versus in the Sinai -- Israeli airpower in the Six-Day and Yom Kippur Wars -- The impact of American arms transfers to Israel -- The American assessment -- The Israeli response.

"The State of Israel faced one of its most difficult challenges during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Though the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) eventually emerged as the clear victor in the war, it suffered serious reverses at the outset of hostilities, as well as substantial losses in men and equipment. This book revisits the Yom Kippur War by exploring a number of issues that have not previously received the attention they deserve or that would benefit from a fresh evaluation. Among the issues examined are: the American-Israeli and Jordanian-Israeli relationships during the war; the roles of Israeli nuclear weapons and airpower; the IDF's practice of combined arms warfare; the reasons why the IDF turned the tide of the war more quickly on the Golan front than on the Sinai front; the impact of American arms transfers; and the lessons derived from the war by the United States Army and the IDF. This book, which relies heavily on government documents and other primary sources of information, fills important descriptive and analytical gaps in the academic literature about the Yom Kippur War. No other book compares to it in respect of content and interpretation. It is, in short, essential reading for all scholars interested in the diplomatic and military dimensions of the war"--

The six-day war : the breaking of the Middle East
Laron, Guy, author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2017]
Introduction From The Local To The Global -- The Article -- The Baath In Power 1963-66 -- Playing The Israel Card -- The Spy Who Came Back From The Cold -- The Corruption Of The Revolution -- Sliding Into War -- The Phone Call -- Arming The Middle East -- Secret Liaisons -- Abba Eban's Tin Ear -- One Soviet Foreign Policy or Two? -- Restraining Damascus Disciplining Cairo -- A Soviet Hall of Mirrors -- A Very Israeli Putsch? -- Last Days -- Defying Israel's Founding Father -- Expanding Israel's Borders -- Confronting Syria -- The Self-inflicted Recession -- Rabin's Schlieffen Plan -- From Yemen to Texas -- A Short Tether -- Conclusion: Six Days and After -- Endnotes

This history examines the Six-Day War, its causes, and its enduring consequences against its global context. One fateful week in June 1967 redrew the map of the Middle East. Many scholars have documented how the Six-Day War unfolded, but little has been done to explain why the conflict happened at all. As we approach its fiftieth anniversary, Guy Laron refutes the widely accepted belief that the war was merely the result of regional friction, revealing the crucial roles played by American and Soviet policies in the face of an encroaching global economic crisis, and restoring Syria's often overlooked centrality to events leading up to the hostilities. The Six-Day War effectively sowed the seeds for the downfall of Arab nationalism, the growth of Islamic extremism, and the animosity between Jews and Palestinians. In this new work, Laron's interdisciplinary perspective and extensive archival research offer a significant reassessment of a conflict-and the trigger-happy generals behind it-that continues to shape the modern world.

Asylum: a survivor's flight from Nazi-occupied Vienna through wartime France

"'It may be that the way in which the words, the sentences, the pages have been put together is the result of a certain intellectual effort. But their content, their essence, has a quite different source. And that source is a profound emotional anguish. An anguish in which the wretched sufferer is able only to keep repeating the same stammering question: How could it all have happened?' As arts editor for one of Vienna's principal newspapers before the German invasion in 1938, Moriz Scheyer knew many of the city's great artists, from Stefan Zweig and Arthur Schnitzler to Bruno Walter, and was an important literary journalist in his own right. But when the vicious, brutal hands of Nazism grabbed hold of Austria, Scheyer was forced from his position and his home. In 1943, while in hiding at a convent in the Dordogne region of France, Scheyer began drafting what would become this book--his memoir. Tracing events from the Anschluss in Austria through life in Paris, both prewar and under German occupation, the Exodus from Paris, his experiences of a French concentration camp, an escape attempt and contact with the Resistance, and a final, dramatic rescue and clandestine life in the convent, Asylum is tense, raw, and riveting in its immediate perspective and the minute details of those terrifying, endless days. After Scheyer's death in 1949, his stepson--who disliked the book and its emotive anti-German rhetoric--destroyed the manuscript. Or thought he did. Recently a carbon copy was discovered in the family's attic by P. N. Singer, the author's step-grandson, who has translated the work and provided an epilogue."--Dust jacket.

British imperialism in Qajar Iran : consuls, agents and influence in the Middle East
Stebbins, H. Lyman, author
London : I.B. Tauris, 2016
"Spurred by a Russian threat to India and the weakness of the Qajar dynasty (1796-1925), Britain established an extensive consular network to further its interests in southern Iran in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In 1888, there were just four British consulates in the country; by 1921 there were twenty-three. H. Lyman Stebbins investigates the development and consequences of British imperialism in Iran in a time of international rivalry, revolution and world war. While previous narratives of Anglo-Iranian relations have focused on the highest diplomatic circles in Tehran, London, Calcutta and St. Petersburg, this book argues that British consuls and political agents made the vast southern borderlands of Iran the real centre of British power and influence during this period. Based on British consular archives from Bushehr, Shiraz, Sistan and Muhammarah, this book reveals that Britain, India and Iran were linked together by discourses of colonial knowledge and patterns of political, military and economic control. It also contextualizes the emergence of Iranian nationalism as well as the failure and collapse of the Qajar state during the Iranian Constitutional Revolution and World War I."--

Truth held hostage : America and the Armenian Genocide - What then? What now?
Evans, John M., author
London : Gomidas Institute, [2016]
Part I: Voyage of Discovery -- Part II: The Armenian Genocide... -- Part III:...And Us?

"John Evans, formerly U.S. Ambassador to Armenia, gained notoriety in 2005 by publicly dissenting from the stated policy of the Bush and previous Administrations on the 90-year-old issue of the Armenian Genocide. A veteran of the U.S. Foreign Service, Ambassador Evans had no Armenian ancestors or family connections, but over the course of his historical studies and diplomatic career, became convinced that a gross injustice was being perpetrated against the Armenians through the denialist policies of the Turkish Government and the U.S. Government's tacit acceptance of them. He decided to take a measured public stand, but then paid for his "heresy" by being dismissed from his post and forced into early retirement, although not without a fight over the issue in the U.S. Congress. Over the course of his thirty-five-year career, Ambassador Evans served with distinction in diplomatic posts in Tehran, Prague, Moscow, Brussels (NATO), St. Petersburg and Washington, reaching the rank of Minister-Counselor. A native of Williamsburg, Virginia, educated at Yale and Columbia, he is an avid student of Russian history who devoted a sabbatical year to investigating the decline of the Ottoman Empire, the setting in which the tragic events of 1915 occurred. Now retired from the Foreign Service, Mr. Evans makes his home in Washington with his wife, the former Donna Chamberlain." -- From publisher web site.

The Ottoman cities of Lebanon : historical legacy and identity in the modern Middle East
Reilly, James A., author
New York : I.B. Tauris, 2016
Introduction -- 1. Ottoman Saida : 'Islamic City', modern state? -- 2. Ottoman Beirut : liberal cosmopolis or Islamic fortress? -- 3. Ottoman Tripoli : a fragmented mirror -- Conclusion.

"Whether defined as essentially 'Turkish', and therefore alien to the Lebanese experience, or remembered in its final years as a tyrannical and brutal dictatorship, the period has not been thought of fondly in most Lebanese historiography. In a far-reaching and much-needed analysis of this complex legacy, James A. Reilly looks at Arabic-language history writing emanating from Lebanon in the post-1975 period, focusing on the three main Ottoman administrative centres of Saida, Beirut and Tripoli. This examination highlights key aspects of Lebanon's current political and cultural climate, and emphasises important points of agreement and conflict in contemporary historical discourse. The 1989 Ta'if Accords, for example, which ended the Lebanese Civil War, were accompanied by calls for reinterpretation of how the country's history could assist in creating a sense of national cohesion. The Ottoman Cities of Lebanon is invaluable to all historians and researchers working on Lebanese history and politics, and wider issues of identity, post-imperialist discourse and nationhood in the Middle East."-- from publisher's description.
