Colonialism and revolution in the Middle East : social and cultural origins of Egypt's 'Urabi movement by Juan Ricardo Cole( )

31 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and held by 3,268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Juan R.I. Cole challenges traditional elite-centered conceptions of the conflict that led to the British occupation of Egypt in September 1882. For a year before the British intervened, Egypt's viceregal government and the country's influential European community had been locked in a struggle with the nationalist supporters of General Ahmad al-'Urabi. Although most Western observers still see the 'Urabi movement as a "revolt" of junior military officers
Engaging the Muslim world by Juan Ricardo Cole( Book )

24 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 1,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historian Cole disentangles the key foreign policy issues that America is grappling with today, from our dependence on Middle East petroleum to the promotion of Islamophobia by the American right, and delivers his informed advice on the best way forward. His ability to take the Muslim perspective into account when looking at East-West relations make his insights well-rounded and prescient as he suggests a course of action on fundamental issues like religion, oil, war, and peace. With substantive recommendations for the administration on how to move forward in key countries such as Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran, this book reveals how we can repair the damage of the disastrous foreign policy of the last eight years and forge ahead on a path of peace and prosperity.--From publisher description

The new Arabs : how the millennial generation is changing the Middle East by Juan Ricardo Cole( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The renowned blogger and Middle East expert Juan Cole illuminates the role of today's Arab youth--who they are, what they want, and how they will affect world politics. Beginning in January 2011, the revolutionary wave of demonstrations and protests, riots, and civil wars that comprised what many call "the Arab Spring" shook the world. These upheavals were spearheaded by youth movements, and yet the crucial role they played is relatively unknown. Middle East expert Juan Cole is here to share their stories. For three decades, Cole has sought to put the relationship of the West and the Muslim world in historical context. In The New Arabs he outlines the history that led to the dramatic changes in the region, and explores how a new generation of men and women are using innovative notions of personal rights to challenge the authoritarianism, corruption, and stagnation that had afflicted their societies. Not all big cohorts of teenagers and twenty-somethings necessarily produce movements centered on their identity as youth, with a generational set of organizations, symbols, and demands rooted at least partially in the distinctive problems besetting people of their age. The Arab Millennials did. And, in a provocative and optimistic argument about the future of the Arab world, The New Arabs shows just how they did it"--Provided by publisher

Roots of North Indian Shīʻism in Iran and Iraq : religion and state in Awadh, 1722-1859 by Juan Ricardo Cole( )

17 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this pioneering study of the Twelver Shi'i branch of Islam prevalent in Iraq and Iran, J.R.I. Cole traces the influence of Shi'i rule on the development of religious communalism and conflict in the North Indian State of Awadh (Oudh). He also examines the relationship of the Shi'i clergy to the state and the clerical reaction to British imperialism and capitalism. Based on research in rare manuscripts and in archives, the book reveals that the Shi'i clergy advocated policies that caused resentment among Sunnis and Hindus, thereby promoting religious communalism and setting the stage for modern communal conflict. The Shi'i learned men took government posts in support of Awadh's Shi'i nawabs and shahs Awadh state support, in turn, helped transform Shi'ism from a persecuted "sect" to a dominant, if still minority, religious establishment. Sociologically, the book draws attention to the specific role of the state in defining "sect" and "church." It also argues the importance of class divisions within the Shi'i community, showing that the dominant clerical ideology was often not accepted by the laboring strata. Cole's study supports the view that Muslim communalism in Northern India had genuine historical roots and was not simply an elite strategy of modern Muslim politicians. Contrary to the arguments of some writers and to the image projected by Iran's current ayatullahs, he claims that most Shi'i clergy did not play a role of opposition to the state
Modernity and the millennium : the genesis of the Baha'i faith in the nineteenth-century Middle East by Juan Ricardo Cole( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modernity and the Millennium is the first book to chart responses in the Muslim Middle East to modernity through an examination of the evolution of the Baha'i faith - a millenarian movement led by the nineteenth-century Iranian prophet Baha'u'llah ("the Glory of God"). This volume illuminates the complexity and ambiguity that characterized the changing relationship of Baha'u'llah and his followers to modernity. The insights presented here illuminate not only the genesis of a new world-religion but also important facets of Middle Eastern - particularly Iranian - social and cultural shifts in the nineteenth century." "Drawing on the work of Habermas, Giddens, Touraine, and Turner, among others, Juan R.I. Cole considers some of the ways in which Middle Eastern society was affected by five developments central to modernity: the lessening entanglement of the state with religion, the move from absolutism to democracy, the rise of sovereign nation-states, the advent of nationalism, and the women's movement. He explores the Baha'i response to religious toleration, democracy, and greater rights for women and their "utopian realist" critique of nationalism, militant Jacobin secularization, industrialized warfare, genocide, oppression of the poor and working classes, and xenophobia."--Jacket
Ayatollahs and democracy in contemporary Iraq by Juan Ricardo Cole( )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iraqi Shiism is undergoing profound changes, leading to new elaborations of the relationship between clerics and democratic principles in an Islamic state. The Najaf tradition of thinking about Shiite Islam and the modern state in Iraq, which first developed during the Iranian constitutional revolution of 1905-1911, rejects the principle that supreme power in an Islamic state must be in clerical hands. Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani of Iraq stands in this tradition, and he has striven to uphold and develop it since the fall of Saddam Hussein. At key points he came into conflict with the Bush administration, which was not eager for direct democracy. Parliamentary politics have also drawn in clerics of the Dawa Party, the Sadr movement, and the Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq, all of which had earlier been authoritarian in outlook. Is Iraqi Shiism experiencing its enlightenment moment?

Juan Cole tells the story of Napoleon's invasion of Egypt in 1798.

He paints a multifaceted portrait of the daily travails of the soldiers in Napoleon's army, including how they imagined Egypt, how their expectations differed from what they found, and how they grappled with military challenges in a foreign land. Cole explains how Napoleon's invasion--the first modern attempt to conquer the Arab world--invented and crystallized the rhetoric of liberal imperialism
