The broken crescent : the "threat" of militant Islamic fundamentalism by Fereydoun Hoveyda( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Militant Islamic fundamentalists blame the ills of their societies on the West and call for the overthrow of local governments and the resumption of Jihad against the Infidels. Ambassador Hoveyda explores the historical and contemporary causes of the current wave of militant Islamic fundamentalism. He also shows why, despite their terrorist attacks in the West, fundamentalists are even more dangerous for Muslim countries that are desperately trying to join the incipient global economy and alleviate their accumulated social and economic problems." "Hoveyda shows how the triumph of fundamentalist interpretations of the Koran in the 12th century triggered the gradual decline of Islamic civilization. He also chronicles the history of militant Islamic movements of the past and present from the "Assassins" of the late 11th century to the reign of Ayatollah Khomeini. Having met his first militant Islamic fundamentalist at the age of four in Syria, where his father was serving as Persian Consul-general, Hoveyda draws upon a lifetime of personal and family experience as well as scholarship and experiences of others to provide an important insider/outsider examination of a worldwide concern."--Jacket
The Shah and the Ayatollah : Iranian mythology and Islamic revolution by Fereydoun Hoveyda( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twenty-two years after Ayatollah Khomeini's ascent to power in Iran, many aspects of his 1979 Islamic revolution remain obscure - if not baffling. Scholars and experts in the West have offered the usual explanations for the Islamic revolution: corruption, deepening gaps between the rich and the poor, rapid industrialization, skyrocketing inflation, westernizing policies that offended traditions, lack of democratic institutions, authoritarian rule, and on and on. But such characteristics, which exist in other Muslim countries - especially in the Arab world - fail to clarify the particularities of the Iranian revolution." "This book offers an original explanation of the events that led to the fall of the Shah and the ascent of Khomeini, which dramatically altered the political and diplomatic situation in the Middle East, the Persian Gulf, and the Caspian Sea region. Hoveyda's account will be of great interest to scholars, students, researchers, and foreign policy makers involved with the Middle East and Islamic fundamentalism."--Jacket

Les neiges du Sinaï by Fereydoun Hoveyda( Book )

6 editions published in 1973 in French and Undetermined and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"́Le dimanche 14 décembre 1969, à New York, Georges M. Amberson, auteur d'un unique roman inspiré par la guerre mondiale, entreprend la lecture de la copieuse édition dominicale du 'New York Times'. Cette lecture va occuper une bonne partie de la journée. Mais en passant d'une section à informations générales, les rubriques publicitaires, les petites annonces, Georges M. Amberson laisse son esprit vagabonder, flot de pensées, d'images et de souvenirs qui l'aident à ressasser ses obsessions et échecs personnels. Ces magmas de mots imprimés et ces réminiscences reflètent le désordre d'une époque en proie au bruit et à la fureur. A travers ce lecteur amer, sarcastique, désabusé, l'auteur reussit à nous décrire la réalité mouvante de l'Amérique d'aujourd'hui. L'individu, en plein désarroi, n'arrive à effacer les mythes et les idéologies du passé qu'an prix d'une douloureuse métamorphose personnelle. Le héros, un homme parmi d'autres, illustre ce conflit. Pourtant, en leur excès même, le désordre du monde et l'instabilité personnelle de Georges M. Amberson laissent espérer un avenir plus serein. Ce roman obsédant, qui donne le vertige, dépasse le problème américain et offre une leçon valable pour tous les hommes d'aujourd'hui de part et d'autre de l'Atlantique"--Publisher's description, p. [3] of cover

Indiqué sur la jaquette : En 1957, Roberto Rossellini prend l'avion pour Bombay. Depuis qu'il a croisé, fasciné, le regard de Gandhi dans une soirée romaine, en 1931, et qu'il a entendu Jean Renoir raconter les bienfaits spirituels du tournage de Fleuve (1950) au Bengale, le cinéaste rêve de filmer ce "pays éléphant qui s'agenouille dans le limon de la vie et de la mort". Explorateur de l'intime et de l'universel, Rossellini traverse le pays pendant six mois, du golfe du Bengale à la mer d'Oman, pour nous faire découvrir, avec l'amour profond et la générosité qui lui sont propres, l'Inde comme personne ne l'avait fait avant lui
