Géopolitique du monde arabe by Georges Mutin( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in French and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De l'Atlantique au Golfe, le Monde arabe occupe une position géostratégique remarquable. Espace de transit, il contrôle de grands itinéraires commerciaux. Le pétrole lui confère un rôle affirmé sur l'échiquier international sans pour autant assurer le développement économique de territoires où tensions et rivalités s'avivent. Cette région en crise inquiète, tant les conflits qui s'y déroulent, difficilement contrôlables, peuvent être lourds de conséquences. C'est sur les rivages méridionaux de la Méditerranée et autour du Golfe qu'ils ont été les plus nombreux depuis la fin de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale. L'ouvrage analyse dans un premier temps l'ensemble du champ géopolitique arabe : le contact avec l'Europe proche, les découpages territoriaux, les idéologies politiques, l'inégale répartition des ressources. Une deuxième partie est consacrée à l'exposé des problèmes géopolitiques qui se posent à l'échelle des sous-ensembles territoriaux : les nouvelles destinées du Sahara maghrébin, la question kurde, les affrontements pour le contrôle du Golfe, la difficile construction d'un Etat palestinien"--Cover; translated as: From the Atlantic to the Gulf, the Arab world occupies a geostrategic and remarkable position. Area of transit, it controls major trade routes. The oil gives it a role on the international scene said without ensuring the economic development of areas where tensions and rivalries revolve. This crisis region concerned, as the conflicts that take place, difficult to control, can have serious consequences. It is on the southern shores of the Mediterranean and around the Gulf that they were the most numerous since the end of the Second World War. The book examines at first the whole field of Arabic geopolitics: close relations with Europe, the territorial divisions, political ideologies, the unequal distribution of resources. A second part is devoted to an exposition of geopolitical issues that arise in sub-territorial units: the new fates of the North African Sahara, the Kurdish issue, fighting for control of the Gulf, the difficult construction of a Palestinian state

Le Moyen-Orient : peuples et territoires by Georges Mutin( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De l'Egypte à l'Afghanistan le Moyen-Orient est un carrefour. Ses 370 millions d'habitants se répartissent inégalement en trois grandes aires culturelles: arabe, persane et turque. Au sein des Etats-nations contemporains, des découpages territoriaux, souvent arbitraires, conduisent des populations minoritaires à une difficile coexistence. Dans cet immense espace de 8 millions de km2, des montagnes relativement arrosées voisinent avec d'immenses étendues steppiques ou désertiques. Partout le partage de l'eau pose problème. Les campagnes où sévit de façon constante l'aridité ne sont plus en mesure de maintenir une production suffisante en dépit des efforts accomplis pour étendre les superficies irriguées. Avec une population de plus en plus urbanisée, la sécurité alimentaire n'est plus assurée et la dépendance alimentaire s'est installée depuis de nombreuses années. Le Moyen-Orient occupe une position géostratégique remarquable entre l'Afrique, l'Asie et l'Europe. Espace de transit, l'isthme contrôle de grands itinéraires commerciaux maritimes ou terrestres. La richesse des hydrocarbures confère à la région un rôle affirmé sur l'échiquier international sans pour autant assurer un développement harmonieux des territoires. Tensions et rivalités s'avivent. Des états opulents côtoient des territoires parmi les plus pauvres de la planète. Enjeux internes ou externes, de toute nature, idéologique, économique, stratégique, s'entremêlent et sont à l'origine depuis un demi-siècle de crises permanentes. -- Back cover

On salt, copper and gold : The origins of early mining and metallurgy in the Caucasus by Catherine Marro( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An international conference focused on the beginnings of mining and metallurgy in the Caucasus was organised in Tbilisi in June 16th-19th 2016 under the auspices of the National Museum of Georgia. This conference, which was funded by the Agence nationale de la recherche (France) and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (Germany), aimed at discussing the intricate relationships between the emergence of mining and metallurgy, and the shaping of late prehistoric societies in south-western Asia. The Caucasus is renowned in Near Eastern archaeology for its wealth in natural resources, in particular in metal ores: for decades, scholars have surmised a specific causal relationships between the rise of complex, hierarchical societies in the Near-East and the development of extractive metallurgy. Metallurgy, however, is only the most visible part of the story that accounts for the dramatic changes perceptible in south-western Asia in the course of the 5th millennium BCE. Early mining, which is not restricted to metal-ore mining, certainly also had an impact in terms of economic networks, social dynamics, settlement patterns and regional integration, not only across the Caucasus, but also in the ancient Near and Middle East. Drawing on these fundamental questions, this book explores the socio-economic, technological and environmental background that favoured the rise of systematic mining and extractive metallurgy in the Caucasus at the end of the Chalcolithic. How far was early mining linked to the spread of specific subsistence strategies such as pastoral herding? Were mined resources mainly intended for local consumption or distributed throughout the Near East, towards Anatolia, Iran or Mesopotamia? Here are some of the issues that are discussed in the present volume, which contains 21 articles written by some of the most eminent specialists in Caucasian archaeology. Un colloque international axé sur les origines de l'extraction minière et de la métallurgie dans le Caucase
