The Rushdie affair : the novel, the Ayatollah, and the West by Daniel Pipes( Book )

22 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and held by 1,280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The publication in 1988 of Salman Rushdie's novel The Satanic Verses triggered a furor that pitted much of the Islamic world against the West over issues of blasphemy and freedom of expression. The controversy soon took on the aspect of a confrontation of civilizations, provoking powerful emotions on a global level. It involved censorship, protests, riots, a break in diplomatic relations, culminating in the notorious Iranian edict calling for the death of the novelist. In The Rushdie Affair, Daniel Pipes explains why the publication of The Satanic Verses became a cataclysmic event with far-reaching political and social consequences. Pipes looks at the Rushdie affair in both its political and cultural aspects and shows in considerable detail what the fundamentalists perceived as so offensive in The Satanic Verses as against what Rushdie's novel actually said. Pipes explains how the book created a new crisis between Iran and the West at the time -- disrupting international diplomacy, billions of dollars in trade, and prospects for the release of Western hostages in Lebanon. Pipes maps out the long-term implications of the crisis. If the Ayatollah so easily intimidated the West, can others do the same? Can millions of fundamentalist Muslims now living in the United States and Europe possibly be assimilated into a culture so alien to them? Insightful and brilliantly written, this volume provides a full understanding of one of the most significant events in recent years. Koenraad Elst's postscript reviews the enduring impact of the Rushdie affair."--Back cover

Was AIDS intentionally inflicted upon blacks by whites? Was JFK assassinated as part of an intricate conspiracy?

Greater Syria : the history of an ambition by Daniel Pipes( Book )

24 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scholars and journalists have long neglected one major theme of political life in the Middle East--Pan-Syrian nationalism. This is the dream of creating a Greater Syria out of an area now governed by Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, and Turkey. Though not nearly as well known as Arab or Palestinian nationalism and hardly studied in depth, Pan-Syrianism has had a profound effect on Middle Eastern politics since the end of World War I. In "Greater Syria," the noted Middle East scholar Daniel Pipes provides the first comprehensive account of this intriguing, important, and little understood ideology. -- Back cover
Slave soldiers and Islam : the genesis of a military system by Daniel Pipes( Book )

11 editions published between 1980 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The hidden hand : Middle East fears of conspiracy by Daniel Pipes( Book )

21 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Hidden Hand, Daniel Pipes provides the first full-length study of conspiracy theories in the Middle East, revealing the power of such theories in determining the political life of the region. Placing conspiracy theories in their historical context, Pipes shows how they have come to suffuse life in the Middle East - from the most private family conversations to the highest and most public levels of politics. He then proceeds to examine conspiracism as a partial explanation for much of the region's problems, including its record of political extremism, violence, and lack of modernization. Concluding with speculations about the future of conspiracism, Pipes makes a very strong case that conspiracy theories are key to understanding the often complicated political culture of the Middle East. The Hidden Hand: Middle East Fears of Conspiracy is a book that anyone interested in the Middle East will want to read

Miniatures : views of Islamic and Middle Eastern politics by Daniel Pipes( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volatility of Muslim and Middle Eastern politics has made these topics an overriding preoccupation of world and especially U.S. politics. Perhaps no region of the world has ever so dominated the American public discourse as the Middle East does today. Sources of trouble include militant Islam, Muslims in the West, the Arab-Israeli conflict, the Iraq situation, relations with Saudi Arabia, the price of oil and gas, and U.S. policy toward all these issues. This collection, by one of the foremost experts in the field, presents original insights, accessibly written.--From publisher description
