Islam and the myth of confrontation : religion and politics in the Middle East by Fred Halliday( Book )

31 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spiralling violence in the Middle East, the ever-present echoes of Jihadist extremism and President George Bush's identification of an 'axis of evil' have all raised the spectre of a future dominated by the conflict between 'Islam' and 'the West'. From theories such as Samuel Huntington's Clash of Civilizations to the anti-Western rhetoric of many Muslim militants themselves, this image of confrontation has come to be widely accepted. At the same time, the many issues afflicting the Middle East itself are widely seen as reflecting the influence of Islam on the politics and society of this region." "Fred Halliday sets out to reject these interpretations in this classic work, revised to encompass the crucially important events of recent months. Considering the sources of Islamic militancy and analyzing the confrontational rhetoric of both Islamic and anti-Muslim demagogues, he provides an alternative, critical but cautious, reassessment. The Middle East, he argues, can be treated neither as a distinct not as a unified region, but must be seen as a set of disparate societies, facing and reacting to the problems of economic development and political change."--Jacket

Arabia without sultans : a political survey of instability in the Arab world by Fred Halliday( Book )

55 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fred Halliday writes:?The Arab Middle East is probably the most misunderstood of all regions; the one with the longest history of contact with the west; yet it is probably the one least understood. Part of the misunderstanding is due to the romantic mythology that has long appeared to shroud the deserts of the peninsula. Where old myths have broken down, new ones have absorbed them or taken their place. Now the Sheikh of Arabia has stepped down from his camel. Instead, through the delusive lens of the?energy crisis' he is seen to be riding a Cadillac and squeezing the powerless Western

The Middle East in international relations : power, politics and ideology by Fred Halliday( Book )

31 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The international relations of the Middle East have long been dominated by uncertainty and conflict. External intervention, interstate war, political upheaval and interethnic violence are compounded by the vagaries of oil prices and the claims of military, nationalist and religious movements. The purpose of this book is to set this region and its conflicts in context, providing on the one hand a historical introduction to its character and problems, and on the other a reasoned analysis of its politics. In an engagement with both the study of the Middle East and the theoretical analysis of international relations, the author, who is one of the best known and most authoritative scholars writing on the region today, offers a compelling and original interpretation. Written in a clear, accessible and interactive style, the book is designed for students, policymakers, and the general reader
Nation and religion in the Middle East by Fred Halliday( Book )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the early days of the Arab nationalist experiment to the emergence of Islamic fundamentalism and beyond, the intertwining of politics and religion in the Middle East has been a salient feature of the region's history. Fred Halliday addresses this complex relationship, considering nationalism and Islamism region-wide, Islamic movements in Turkey, Iran, and Tunisia, and the likely fate of the remaining monarchies in the Arab world."--Jacket

Shocked and awed : a dictionary of the War on Terror by Fred Halliday( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part reference, part polemic, part compelling snapshot of our times, Shocked and Awed is a bristling arsenal of potent weapons: words. Fred Halliday's unorthodox dictionary defines hundreds of words and phrases used about 9/11, the wars and other events that have followed it, and ongoing issues linked to those events. He shows how the War on Terror, itself a fascinating linguistic construct, has brought us not just new words, such as "Gitmo," and new imports, such as "jihad," but also new ways of using existing language, such as "extraordinary rendition." His definitions include religious, political, and military terms; famous quotes and phrases; cultural phenomena and personalities; euphemisms of war; important Middle Eastern vocabulary; stereotypes and insults; and much more. Taken together, these words tell a new story about the power and malleability of language and its important role in the central conflicts of our day. An essential reference, Shocked and Awed will keep readers informed and up-to-date on the global vocabulary war being waged around us in the twenty-first century
Political journeys : the openDemocracy essays by Fred Halliday( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the great contrarians of international relations scholarship, Fred Halliday was able to combine his understanding of the broad sweep of modern history with a profound knowledge of modern revolutions, the Middle East, and national movements. This collection of Halliday's political essays written for the online journal openDemocracy between 2004 and 2009 is proof of a subtle worldview that continues to generate questions: What is the relation between religion, nationalism, and progress? Is a new international order possible? When is intervention a force for progress? From the big headline topics such as the Iraq War to the unexpected comparisons of Tibet and Palestine, or Afghanistan and the Falklands, Halliday's writings provide a perennially surprising and enlightened guide to the major issues of international politics."--Publisher's website
