Conflicts in the Middle East since 1945 by Beverley Milton-Edwards( Book )

43 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 1,064 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why is there so much conflict in the Middle East? Since World War II, conflicts such as the Iran-Iraq War and the Kuwait Crisis have made the Middle East the main focus of military attention. Conflicts in the Middle East since 1945 analyzes the nature of conflict in the Middle East, with its racial, ethnic, political, cultural, religious, and economic factors." "Giving a historical overview, the main conflicts are also put in their wider context with a thematic debate of issues such as: the emergence of radical Islam, the resolution of conflicts, diplomacy and peace-making, and the role of superpowers." "With further reading suggestions and chronologies of the main episodes of conflicts, Conflicts in the Middle East since 1945 is an introduction to modern Middle Eastern history for undergraduates and the general reader alike."--Jacket
Jordan : a Hashemite legacy by Beverley Milton-Edwards( Book )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Created as a mechanism for maintaining British influence through a local patron, Jordan's future never looked certain. Nevertheless, under the leadership of the Hashemite monarchy led by Abdullah and then his grandson Hussein, the Kingdom of Jordan has become a permanent feature on the map of the modern Middle East. This volume, intended for both academic and general readers, offers an overview of the history, politics and economics of this fascinating country and its role in a region disfigured by the Arab-Israeli conflict. The main focus of the book is on King Hussein's reign, his internal struggle with the Palestinians, his quest to modernise his kingdom and his pursuit of an agenda for peace inclusive of Israel and Iraq. The authors also consider the prospects for the 'new Jordan' under King Abdullah II."--Jacket

17 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Italian and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The owner of the island, also an English gentleman, has amassed a fortune in pearls. He is both a stern disciplinarian and a religious megalomaniac. As the protagonists in this 'quartette' begin to play out their parts, the plot moves to its dramatic, but ambiguous, conclusion
Without glory in Arabia : the British retreat from Aden by Peter Hinchcliffe( Book )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'So we left without glory but without disaster, ' Sir Humphrey Trevelyan, the last High Commissioner of the Federation of South Arabia. In 1967, 139 years after their arrival in Aden, the British withdrew from the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. Their departure was abrupt, messy and controversial. Using important, previously unpublished material and original interviews with a range of individuals, both British and Yemeni, who lived through this defining period of colonial history, Without Glory in Arabia tells the story of the final few years of British rule in Aden and the neighbouring Eastern and Western Aden Protectorates. While some view British rule, on the whole, as beneficial to the local population, others insist that very little was achieved. Worse, Britain did not provide a structure of government constitution which met the conflicting needs of Aden and the Protectorate. This illuminating book brilliantly sets the scuttle--as the episode came to be known--in context, with a thorough re-examination of the background against which the events of the 1960s unfolded in this obscure backwater of the British Empire"--Back cover
