An economic history of the Middle East and North Africa by Charles Philip Issawi( Book )

35 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and Arabic and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent economic history of the Middle East and North Africa is quite extraordinary. This is axiomatic, but the very nature of the economic changes that have setmmed directly from the effects of oil resources in these areas has tended to obscure longterm patterns of economic change and the fundamental transformation of Middle Eastern and North African economies and societies over the past two hundred years

The Fertile Crescent, 1800-1914 : a documentary economic history by Charles Philip Issawi( Book )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first comprehensive history and economic analysis of the Fertile Crescent during the 19th century, a region currently encompassing Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, and a small part of Turkey. Presenting 155 carefully selected documents--the majority drawn from British and French archives and here published for the first time, the balance translated from Arabic, French, German, Russian, Hebrew, Italian, and Turkish sources--Issawi provides an in-depth treatment of the economic life of the region, with chapters on social life and organization, trade, transport, agriculture, industry, and public and private finance. Including extensive cross-references that pinpoint the connections between the subjects discussed, the book is an invaluable resource on a historically rich and dynamic region."

The Middle East economy : decline and recovery : selected essays by Charles Philip Issawi( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once large caravans traversed huge distances to reach Middle Eastern cities whose wealth from long-distance trade, superior architecture, craftsmanship, and scientific knowledge filled Christian crusaders with awe. Europe knew nothing comparable until the late Middle Ages, when the systematic use of waterways made transportation more efficient. From the fourteenth century on, Europe surpassed the Middle East in most of the areas in which that region had formerly excelled. Charles Issawi focuses on the main reasons for the economic decline of the Middle East. He discusses climate, geography, and religion, with particular emphasis on the military elite, whose contempt for artisans and merchants thwarted positive economic initiatives. The role played by minorities and foreigners throughout the region's history is also examined
Cross-cultural encounters and conflicts by Charles Philip Issawi( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Issawi's collection of essays, Cross-Cultural Encounters and Conflicts, has been written in the belief that a study of the past encounters and conflicts between the world's major cultures can shed light on their nature and importance. Though the emphasis is on the Middle East, the subjects covered here range in scope from the great ancient civilizations to Shelley's passion for the Middle East, from the failures of the Greeks as empire builders to the predominance of English as an international language today. Other essays examine either the way in which certain cultures were formed, or the effects of the direct control of one culture over another, or cross-cultural perceptions, most notably the dramatic change in the Western perception of the Orient between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries."--Jacket

Egypt; an economic and social analysis by Charles Philip Issawi( Book )

12 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prof. Issawi (American University of Beirut) concentreert hoofdzakelijk zijn aandacht op de sociale en economische ontwikkeling van Egypte tot aan Wereldoorlog II. Hij wijst er op dat de meeste boeken over Egypte zich bepalen tot de Anglo-Egyptische betrekkingen, z.i. zijn de econ. en de sociale toestanden aldaar de belangstelling echter ten volle waard vanwege de uitzonderlijke positie van dit land in de Arabische en de Islamitische wereld. Want ongetwijfeld is Egypte hiervan het voornaamste gebied. Hoewel bepaalde sectoren van de nationale huishouding (de buitenl. handel, katoen) intensief zijn bestudeerd, hebben andere (vooral de nijverheids- en arbeidsproblemen) tot nu toe weinig belangstelling kunnen inboezemen
