Islam and the myth of confrontation : religion and politics in the Middle East by Fred Halliday ( Book )
25 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 1,159 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

13 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the dust settled around the devastation of the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon on 11 September 2001, a host of questions emerged surrounding the attacks, the motives behind them and their future implications. In Two Hours that Shook the World Fred Halliday expands on the many socio-cultural, religious and political problems that have plagued the Middle East and Central Asia in the last half-century. Much has been written about ?global terrorism' and the need to eliminate it but also about the divide between East and West, the ?clash of civilisations'. Halliday dispels the idea tha

The Middle East in international relations : power, politics and ideology by Fred Halliday ( Book )
28 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 891 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

Shocked and awed how the war on terror and Jihad have changed the English language by Fred Halliday ( )
10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Far more than just a military conflict, the 'War on Terror' has been a struggle over values and meanings, a desperate contest for hearts and minds in which language has become the battlefield. In this highly original book, Fred Halliday takes us on a tour of this new war-zone, its artillery and trenches, minefields and booby-traps. Drawing on years of painstaking collation, Halliday shows how the 'War on Terror' 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'. Scanning the pock

Arabia without sultans by Fred Halliday ( Book )
32 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 391 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
