Religion and state : the Muslim approach to politics by L. Carl Brown( )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 2,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The image of Islam as an aggressive and xenophobic religion has long prevailed and can at times appear to be substantiated by current affairs. This work challenges this conventional view, with a historical overview ranging from Islam's early centuries to the present day
Diplomacy in the Middle East : the international relations of regional and outside powers by L. Carl Brown( )

37 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 1,469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Middle East has a distinctive diplomatic culture, shaped by history, geography, and the social structures of Middle Eastern states. This book seeks to survey the diplomatic relationships and the foundations of foreign policy making among the principle players in the region, as well as exploring the Middle East policies of the four leading outside powers who have played such a crucial role in the region--the US, Britain, France, and Russia. Contributors to this volume, who are some of the most eminent specialists in their field, search for common themes and disparities in Middle East diplomacy
The Tunisia of Ahmad Bey, 1837-1855 by L. Carl Brown( )

38 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the energetic but confused prodding of the activist ruler Ahmad Bey, Tunisia made its first effort to institute European-inspired political and military reforms. L. Carl Brown's book on the reign of Ahmad Bey is thus a case study in modernization as well as a historical survey of Tunisia in the mid-nineteenth century. Professor Brown explains the workings of the traditional political system, an elaborate blend of Hafsid and Ottoman governmental ideas and practices. He explores the ways in which the changes imposed on Tunisia by the West made this system unworkable. Turning to the modernization movement itself, the author argues that the first phase of modernization was almost exclusively in the hands of the existing political elite, whose background, education, career pattern, and self-image he examines. This elite, working within a political climate characterized by a close interweaving of domestic and diplomatic concerns, developed an operating style described as collaborationist modernization. In addition to recapturing in a narrative history the age of Ahmad Bey and the political class over which he ruled, Professor Brown fits the Tunisian story of these years into the broader historical context of change imposed by the West on the rest of the world. Originally published in 1975.

International Politics and the Middle East : old rules, dangerous game by L. Carl Brown( Book )

25 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work argues that the political complexities of today's Middle East and the region's enmeshment in great power politics are best explained in terms of the distinctive international relations subsystem that has evolved over the past two centuries. L. Carl Brown shows how present tensions grew out of "the Eastern Question"--The elaborate diplomatic game in which European states dismembered the Ottoman Empire from the late eighteenth century until after World War I. This game still goes on, with the outside parties neither effectively absorbing the Middle East nor releasing it from their hold. The author describes the rules of this game--their roots, their application under the varying circumstances of the past two hundred years, and their tenacious durability in a region otherwise undergiong revolutionary change. Present political trends in the Middle East bode ill for the people of the region and the rest of the world--all the more reason to study their underlying structure

Imperial legacy : the Ottoman imprint on the Balkans and the Middle East by L. Carl Brown( Book )

22 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and Turkish and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imperial Legacy gathers together distinguished scholars to demonstrate how the Ottoman legacy continues to shape patterns of behavior and perception among the peoples of Western Asia, Northern Africa, and Southeastern Europe. The authors also explore how this complex history is reinscribed by nations and ethnic groups in the building of ideologies and identities today. Ranging widely through issues including politics, diplomacy, education, language, and religion, these essays also address the different regional perspectives on the Ottoman Legacy found in the Arab world, the Balkans, and the Republic of Turkey
From madina to metropolis : heritage and change in the Near Eastern city by L. Carl Brown( Book )

13 editions published between 1970 and 1973 in English and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 11 papers comprising this book were prepared for a conference on Urban Planning and Urban Prospects in the Near East and North Africa held at Princeton University in 1970. Eight Euramericans and five Near Easterners, whose disciplines include history, sociology, demography, architecture, urban planning, and geography, offer their perceptions of Near East-North African madinas "traditional cities" and emerging metropolises. Each author argues that a better understanding of and a greater appreciation for the sociocultural aspects of traditional cities will contribute to the discovery of solutions to the many human problems confronting today's metropolises. -- From http://www.jstor.org (Dec. 1, 2016)
