Aromas of Aleppo : the legendary cuisine of Syrian Jews by Poopa Dweck( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Aleppian Jewish community migrated from the ancient city of Aleppo in historic Syria and settled in New York and Latin American cities in the early 20th century, it brought its rich cuisine and vibrant culture. Most Syrian recipes and traditions, however, were not written down and existed only in the minds of older generations. Poopa Dweck, a first generation Syrian'Jewish American, has devoted much of her life to preserving and celebrating her community's centuries'old legacy. Dweck relates the history and culture of her community through its extraordinary cuisine, offering more than 180 exciting ethnic recipes with tantalizing photos and describing the unique customs that the Aleppian Jewish community observes during holidays and lifecycle events. Among the irresistible recipes are: -Bazargan'Tangy Tamarind Bulgur Salad -Shurbat Addes'Hearty Red Lentil Soup with Garlic and Coriander -Kibbeh'Stuffed Syrian Meatballs with Ground Rice -Samak b'Batata'Baked Middle Eastern Whole Fish with Potatoes -Sambousak'Buttery Cheese'Filled Sesame Pastries -Eras bi'Ajweh'Date'Filled Crescents -Chai Na'na'Refreshing Mint Tea Like mainstream Middle Eastern cuisines, Aleppian Jewish dishes are alive with flavor and healthful ingredients'featuring whole grains, vegetables, legumes, and olive oil'but with their own distinct cultural influences. In Aromas of Aleppo, cooks will discover the best of Poopa Dweck's recipes, which gracefully combine Mediterranean and Levantine influences, and range from small delights (or maza) to daily meals and regal holiday feasts'such as the twelve'course Passover seder

Britain's moment in Palestine : retrospect and perspectives, 1917-48 by Michael Joseph Cohen( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Analysing why, and how, the British took on the Palestine Mandate; this book explores how their interests and policies changed during its course, and why they left. Issuing the Balfour Declaration in 1917 for military and strategic reasons, the first decade of the Mandate saw an influx of Jewish capital mobilized by the Zionists which enabled the British to fund not only the administration of Palestine, but also her imperial projects there. In the mid-1930s, as the clouds of World War Two gathered, Britain's commitment to Zionism was superseded by the need to secure her strategic assets in the Middle East and consequently her policy turned to favour the Arabs. The post war period saw Britain abandon any attempts to impose a settlement in Palestine that would be acceptable to the Arab States and the government referred Palestine to the United Nations, without recommendations, leaving the antagonists to settle their conflict on the battlefield. Based on archival sources and the most up-to-date scholarly research, this comprehensive history is a must-read for anyone with an interest in Israel, and the Middle East in general"
Britain and the Middle East in the 1930s : security problems, 1935-39 by Michael Joseph Cohen( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aggressive foreign policy of Fascist Italy, and the growing threats of Nazi Germany and of Japan, created multiple security problems for Britain and its empire. This book focuses on the Middle East, where the hegemony which Britain and France had established after the First World War was increasingly challenged during the 1930s." "The first part examines the global context in which British strategy for the Middle East was formulated. It includes important new assessments of Italy's strategy in the Mediterranean, and of Egypt as the keystone of British defense plans." "In part two, the political situation in Egypt in the aftermath of the Abyssinian crisis, and Egypt's own regional ambitions are vividly portrayed. It includes chapters on the rethinking of strategic policy in Iraq, and the decline in cooperation between Britain and Saudi Arabia." "The third part focuses on Palestine, where British control was challenged by the Arab rebellion against the Mandate, which established the Jewish National Home. Britain was acutely embarrassed by the protracted struggle, 1936-39, given the pan-Arab sympathies for the rebels and the illicit support afforded by the dictatorships in Europe." "The conclusion considers the question of appeasement and British colonial policy on the eve of World War II."--Jacket
