The Iraqi revolution of 1958 : the old social classes revisited( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Iraqi revolution of 1958 was a landmark in the history of the Middle East. Only two years after the Suez Affair, when pan-Arab sentiments were riding high throughout the region, a group of nationalist officers of the Iraqi army overthrew the monarchy and esetablished a republican regime. This book assesses the causes and the social, political and economic consequences of the revolution which destroyed the old social order and led, after a protracted political struggle, to the rule of the Baath Party and since the late 1970s, Saddam Hussein. The inspiration of the study is Hanna Batatu's major work on the social and economic bases of Iraqi politics. 'The Old Social Classes and the Revolutionary Movements of Iraq (1978)'. The book concludes with a chapter by Batatu on class structure in Iraq, the role of the communists and nationalists in emancipating Iraq from British control, and the link between the revolution of 1958 and the crisis of 1990-1. Essays from leading scholars of contemporary Iraq analyse in detail the transformation of the Iraqi state. The contributors are: Norman Daniel, Wm. Roger Louis, Nicholas G. Thacher, Frederick W. Axelgard, Joe Stork, Rashid Khalidi, Marion Farouk-Sluglett and Peter Slughett, Robert A. Fernea, Roger Owen, Abdul-Salaam Youssif, Sami Zubaida and Hanna Batatu. There is a preface to the book by Albert Hourani"--Publisher's description p. [2] of dust jacket
Musaddiq, Iranian nationalism, and oil( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Muhammad Musaddiq was the first of the great charismatic anti-colonial campaigners of the post-war world. As Prime Minister of Iran between 1951 and 1953 he nationalised the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, led the nation's defiant attempt to run its oil industry independently during an economic blockade and attempted to run its oil industry independently during an economic blockade and attempted to strengthen the role of parliament in Iran. Musaddiq's crusade led to conflict with powerful foreign interests and in 1953 the CIA, at British instigation, removed him in a coup d'etat which restored the Shah's absolute powers. This book is a full-scale biography of Musaddiq which also charts the history of the Popular Movement from Musaddiq's downfall in 1953 to his death in 1967. Based on all the new material that has emerged from Iran since the revolution, Homa Katouzian's lively study is essential for all students of modern Iran, the Middle East and the politics of the Third World."--Publisher summary

"All that's Left to You presents the story of twenty-four hours in the real and remembered lives of a brother and sister living in Gaza and separated from their family. The desert and time emerge as characters as Kanafani speaks through the desert, the brother, and the sister to build the rhythm of the narrative. The Palestinian attachment to land and family, and the sorrow over their loss, are symbolized by the young man's unremitting anger and shame over his sister's sexual disgrace."--BOOK JACKET

New waw : Saharan oasis by Ibrāhīm Kūnī( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Upon the death of their leader, a group of Tuareg, a nomadic Berber community whose traditional homeland is the Sahara Desert, turns to the heir dictated by tribal custom; however, he is a poet reluctant to don the mantle of leadership. Forced by tribal elders to abandon not only his poetry but his love, who is also a poet, he reluctantly serves as leader. Whether by human design or the meddling of the Spirit World, his death inspires his tribe to settle down permanently, abandoning not only nomadism but also the inherited laws of the tribe. The community they found, New Waw, which they name for the mythical paradise of the Tuareg people, is also the setting of Ibrahim al-Koni's companion novel, The Puppet. For al-Koni, this Tuareg tale of the tension between nomadism and settled life represents a choice faced by people everywhere, in many walks of life, as a result of globalism. He sees an inevitable interface between myth and contemporary life

The sheltered quarter : a tale of a boyhood in Mecca by Ḥamzah Muḥammad Būqarī( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Counter Hamza Bogary describes a bygone way of life that has now irreversibly disappeared. He speaks of life in Mecca before the advent of oil. Only partly autobiographical, the memoir is nevertheless rich in remembered detail based on Bogary's early observations of life in Mecca. He has transformed his knowledge into art through his sense of humor, empathy, and remarkable understanding of human nature. This work not only entertains it also informs its readers about the Arabia of the first half of the twentieth century in a graphic and fascinating way. The narrator, young Muhaisin, deals with various aspects of Arabian culture, including education, pilgrimages, styles of clothing, slavery, public executions, the status of women, and religion. Muhaisin is frank in his language and vivid in his humor. The reader quickly comes to love the charming and mischievous boy in this universal tale
The Director and other stories from Morocco by Laylá Abū Zayd( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

New stories by Leila Abouzeid, the noted Moroccan writer, constitute an event for both East and West, for, as in her critically acclaimed novel, Year of the Elephant, the author cuts across cultural and national boundaries to offer fiction that has meaning for both Western and Middle Eastern readers. The stories in this volume deal with issues both traditional and modern-relations between parents and children, between husbands and wives, and between citizens of newly independent Morocco and its new nationalist representative government. Independence from French colonial rule has brought many changes to Morocco - some more beneficial than others. Women have entered the work force in great numbers, a development which has brought them new freedoms, but which has also caused problems within the traditional family. Abouzeid shows us how these changes have affected ordinary men and women, how small everyday events loom large in individual lives. To her crisp style, reminiscent of some Western realist novelists, she adds elements of Arabic fiction - the oral story-telling technique, for example
