Infidels : a history of the conflict between Christendom and Islam by Andrew Wheatcroft( Book )

45 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the first panoptic history of the long struggle between the Christian West and Islam. In this dazzlingly written, acutely nuanced account, Andrew Wheatcroft tracks a deep fault line of animosity between civilizations. He begins with a stunning account of the Battle of Lepanto in 1571, then turns to the main zones of conflict: Spain, from which the descendants of the Moors were eventually expelled; the Middle East, where Crusaders and Muslims clashed for years; and the Balkans, where distant memories spurred atrocities even into the twentieth century. Throughout, Wheatcroft delves beneath stereotypes, looking incisively at how images, ideas, language, and technology (from the printing press to the Internet), as well as politics, religion, and conquest, have allowed each side to demonize the other, revive old grievances, and fuel across centuries a seemingly unquenchable enmity. Finally, Wheatcroft tells how this fraught history led to our present maelstrom. We cannot, he argues, come to terms with today's perplexing animosities without confronting this dark past

With united strength : H.H. Shaikh Zayid Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the leader and the nation by Markaz al-Imārāt lil-Dirāsāt wa-al-Buḥūth al-Istirātījīyah( )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Visionary statesmen who have created an enduring state edifice through purposeful consensus and persuasion remain a historical rarity. The formation of the United Arab Emirates on December 2, 1971 under the inspiring leadership of its founding father, H.H. Shaikh Zayid Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, is a unique example of the building of a prosperous nation that has earned its founder his rightful place among the outstanding statesmen of all time. Against the backdrop of the British withdrawal from the Arabian Gulf region, it was H.H. Shaikh Zayid who accomplished the complex task of unifying the erstwhile Trucial States, creating the only thriving federal state in the Middle East. While fulfilling his personal destiny as the chosen leader, H.H. Shaikh Zayid strengthened the nation by uniting disparate tribal groups and sustained it against formidable challenges. He pioneered the modernization of the country and ultimately realized his dream of an effective framework for collaboration with neighboring Gulf states. The UAE has since become a constructive force within the region and beyond, exemplifying the principles of national unity, regional solidarity, international cooperation and religious tolerance. This book adopts a scholarly approach in analyzing the UAE's unique federal experience, its phenomenal achievements and H.H. Shaikh Zayid's far-sighted policies. It is an in-depth study of the birth of a progressive nation and the pivotal role of its leader, based largely on unpublished historical records and documents. The factual foundation of the book and its meticulous documentation make it a valuable record covering an important era in the contemporary history of the Arab Gulf region
Nicholas II : the last tsar by Marvin Lyons( Book )

6 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a photographic biography, the balance between text and illustrations must always represent an uneasy compromise. In this study the aim has been to cut the text to a minimum, and to allow the photographs to create their own impression. The text aims to introduce a particular group of photographs, rather than provide a continuous narrative accompaniment. - Editor's note
