24 editions published between 1970 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Elie Kedourie's classic study of the Middle East in modern times analyzes British failures in the region during the zenith of its power and influence. Mr. Kedourie attributes much of Britain's faulty and disastrous handling of Middle East problems to what he calls "the Chatham House version." It was a view of Middle Eastern history and politics propounded and propagated in the various publications of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (known popularly as Chatham House), written or edited by Arnold Toynbee. The episodes that Mr. Kedourie investigates show "successive and cumulative manifestations of illusion, misjudgment, maladroitness, and failure." Together they point up hard lessons for any outside power that would intervene in Middle Eastern affairs."--Jacket

Politics in the Middle East by Elie Kedourie( Book )
13 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Events in the Middle East have prompted many questions concerning the conflict between Islam and the European states which have, historically, been seen as a military and political challenge. Why has ideological politics triumphed in the Middle East? Why have attempts to form constitutional governments repeatedly failed in Islamic states?" "This new and authoritative account provides the historical analysis necessary for a clearer understanding of these questions." "In the nineteenth century Middle Eastern leaders believed that they could surmount the challenge posed by the European G̀reat Powers' by borrowing European weapons and technology, along with military and administrative organization, and, later, by adopting representative forms of government. These strategies proved a disappointment. The aftermath has been the establishment of military regimes, and an ideological style of politics, whether the ideology is nationalism or fundamentalism. This book describes and discusses the apparent success of ideological politics, and analyses its character."--BOOK JACKET

Political thought and political history studies in memory of Elie Kedourie by Elie Kedourie( )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Different from the usual festschrift, this volume in memory of Professor Kedourie is limited to contributions by his former students. The far-reaching range of Professor Kedourie's interests and the immense expanse of his horizons are revealed by the great diversity of subjects, fields and disciplines of dissertations supervised by him. Indeed, the ten articles included in this book testify to the wide range of subjects of interest to Professor Kodourie's students. Following a survey of Elie Kedourie's teaching of Middle Eastern history, the book is divided into two parts, each comprising five articles. The first part deals with philosophy, political thought and ideology and the second with history and politics. The subjects of these articles range from Schiller's aesthetics to the failure of democracy in Iran; from the Russian conquest of the Caucasus in the 1840s to Arab strategies vis-a-vis Israel in the 1960s; and from Sun Yat-sen's influence on Quadhfafi to the creation of modern Iraq. Thus people interested in various subjects - aesthetics, political thought, ideologies, Middle Eastern, Russian and Chinese history - should discover in this book articles of appeal
