The duel : Pakistan on the flight path of American power by Tariq Ali( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pakistan is the sixth most populous country in the world, the only Islamic state to have nuclear weapons, under military dictatorship for 33 of its 50 years in existence. Its 1000-mile border with Afghanistan is the likely hideout of Osama bin Laden--yet it is the linchpin in the United States' war on terror. With increasingly bold attacks by Taliban supporters in the border regions threatening to split the Pakistan army, with the only political alternatives as corrupt as the regime they seek to replace, and with a newly radicalized movement of lawyers testing its strength as champions of the rule of law, the chances of sustained stability in Pakistan look slim. Tariq Ali, long acknowledged as a leading commentator on Pakistan, combines deep understanding of the country with extensive firsthand research and unsparing political judgment to weigh the prospects of those contending for power today.--From publisher description
Bush in Babylon : the recolonisation of Iraq by Tariq Ali( Book )

29 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and Turkish and held by 828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The assault and capture of Iraq, and the resistance it has provoked, will shape the politics of the twenty-first century. In this provocative book, Tariq Ali provides a history of Iraqi resistance against empires old and new, and argues against the view that sees imperialist occupation as the only viable solution to bring about regime-change in corrupt and dictatorial states. Detailing the longstanding imperial ambitions of key figures in the Bush administration and how war profiteers close to Bush are cashing in, this book moves beyond the corporate looting by the US military government to offer the reader an in-depth analysis of the extent of resistance to the US occupation in Iraq.--From publisher description
The stone woman by Tariq Ali( Book )

38 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Ottoman Empire, known as the "sick man of Europe" in the 19th century, continues its slow, steady decline in the summer of 1899 as elderly Iskander Pasha (a descendant of a sultan's favorite courtier) and his well-born family gather at their seaside palace outside Istanbul. Ali, a well-known leftist activist in Britain, explores the complexities of the Ottoman mentality in his fifth outing, a colorful, sensual drama of families, sexual intrigue and rebellion. As the novel begins, Iskander suffers a stroke and loses his power of speech. Various members of the family tell their stories, interwoven with chapters transcribing confessions made to the "stone woman," a rock formation on the estate. Iskander has four children: Salman, the eldest son; Halil, a general in the army; Nilofer, the daughter whose dramatic life is most fully explored; and her married stepsister, Zeynep. Memed, Iskander's elder brother, and his lover, the Baron, also join the family. The plot coheres neatly as the stories interconnect: Nilofer married a Greek schoolteacher for whom her love cooled, leaving her miserable; when her husband is murdered, a victim of anti-Greek violence, she pursues a love affair with a barber's son. Salman is also unhappily married, to a woman in Egypt who turns against him with an almost psychopathic violence. Halil conspires with other generals in the army to overthrow the Ottoman government. The Baron, a trained Hegelian scholar, holds forth, pedantically, on the roots of Ottoman decay."--This text refers to the Hardcover edition

A sultan in Palermo by Tariq Ali( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fourth novel in Tariq Ali's Islam Quintet is set in medieval Palermo, a Muslim city rivaling Baghdad and Cordoba in size and splendor. The year is 1153. The Normans are ruling Siqqiliya, but Arab culture and language dominate the island and the court. Sultan Rujari (King Roger) surrounds himself with Muslim intellectuals, several concubines, and an administration presided over by gifted eunuchs. The bishops, expecting to be at the pinnacle of power, are angered by the decadence of the court. In this captivating novel, Tariq Ali charts the life and loves of the medieval cartographer Muhammed al-Idrisi. Torn between his close friendship with the sultan and his friends who are leaving the island or plotting a resistance to Norman rule, Idrisi finds temporary solace in the harem; but, confronted by the common people of Noto and Catania, his conscience is troubled."--Book cover
The Stalinist legacy : its impact on twentieth-century world politics by Tariq Ali( Book )

Trotsky for beginners by Tariq Ali( Book )

12 editions published between 1980 and 1998 in French and English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Entreprise louable que de présenter à un public adolescent la vie et la pensée de Trotsky, et à travers eux les grands événements de l'époque. Une mise en pages originale, où graphisme et texte s'épaulent mutuellement, devrait en faciliter la compréhension. Il y a hélas coexistence difficile entre les visées pédagogiques et idéologiques dans cet ouvrage où la vulgarisation, par endroits, se fait simplification caricaturale et galerie d'images d'Epinal. La bande dessinée éducative semble une formule qui n'est pas encore au point
