Revue de presse :

'Thrilling and poignant, woven with a layered texture of knowledge and empathy that deftly stitches familiar figures into the narrative in a fresh way.' David Gardner, International Affairs Editor, Financial Times, and author of Last Chance: The Middle East in the Balance

'This concise, brilliant and erudite book is the product of wide reading, hard thinking and years of direct experience of the Middle East. The author has managed to throw fresh light on 1,400 years of Arab history from the Prophet Muhammad to the Arab Spring. There are lively and informative insights on almost every page.' 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. John McHugo has managed to show, with compassion, a good deal of humour and unerring historical judgement, the power of the ideas and the forces that have shaped what we now think of as the Arab world. In doing so, McHugo has provided a way of understanding this complex and ongoing story that will enlighten all who read it.' Charles Tripp, author of The Power and the People: Paths of Resistance in the Middle East

'A well-written, original and stimulating introduction to the Arab world.' Gilbert Achcar, author of The Arabs and the Holocaust: The Arab-Israeli War of Narratives

'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

'A valuable introduction to Arab history ... Recommended for anyone wishing to learn more about the multifaceted history of the Arab world and its relevance to modern day events.' Asian Affairs

'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

'Purposeful, insightful and tremendously useful, complete with an excellent bibliographic essay.' Kirkus

'Gets to the point with authority, insight and grace to provide the essential political contexts for understanding the ongoing developments in today s Arab world.' -- History Book Club

'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

'A valuable and rewarding work ... highly recommended' -- Bulletin of the British Foundation for the Study of Arabia

Présentation de l'éditeur :

The key to understanding the Arab world today and in the future lies in 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 and illuminates the choices that lie ahead in the wake of the Arab uprisings.

Description du livre The New Press, United States, 2013. Hardback. État : New. 236 x 164 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From Algeria and Libya to Egypt and Syria, the Arab world commands Western headlines, even as its complex politics and cultures elude the grasp of most Western readers and commentators. Perhaps no other region is so closely linked to contemporary U.S. foreign policy, and nowhere else does the unfolding of events have such significant consequences for America. A Concise History of the Arabs argues that the key to understanding the Arab world todayand in the years aheadis unlocking its past. John McHugo takes the reader on a journey through the political, social, and intellectual history of the Arabs from the Roman Empire right up to the present day. His sweeping and fluent account describes in vivid detail the mission of the Prophet Muhammad, the expansion of Islam, the origins of Shiism, medieval and modern conflicts, the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the interaction with Western ideas, the struggle to escape foreign domination, the rise of Islamism, and the end of the era of dictators. McHugo reveals how the Arab world came to have its present form, why change was inevitable, and what choices lie ahead following the Arab Spring. This deeply informed and accessible account is the perfect entry point for anyone seeking to comprehend this vital part of the world. N° de réf. du libraire AAC9781595589460
