Islam and the myth of confrontation : religion and politics in the Middle East by Fred Halliday( Book )

38 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spiralling violence in the Middle East, the ever-present echoes of Jihadist extremism and President George Bush's identification of an 'axis of evil' have all raised the spectre of a future dominated by the conflict between 'Islam' and 'the West'. From theories such as Samuel Huntington's Clash of Civilizations to the anti-Western rhetoric of many Muslim militants themselves, this image of confrontation has come to be widely accepted. At the same time, the many issues afflicting the Middle East itself are widely seen as reflecting the influence of Islam on the politics and society of this region." "Fred Halliday sets out to reject these interpretations in this classic work, revised to encompass the crucially important events of recent months. Considering the sources of Islamic militancy and analyzing the confrontational rhetoric of both Islamic and anti-Muslim demagogues, he provides an alternative, critical but cautious, reassessment. The Middle East, he argues, can be treated neither as a distinct not as a unified region, but must be seen as a set of disparate societies, facing and reacting to the problems of economic development and political change."--Jacket
Two hours that shook the world : September 11, 2001 : causes and consequences by Fred Halliday( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This expands on the many socio-cultural, religious and political problems that have plagued the Middle East and Central Asia in the last half-century. Much has been written about 'global terrorism' and the need to eliminate it but also abut the divide between East and West, the 'clash of civilizations.' This book dispels the idea that the Muslim and non-Muslim worlds are poised for conflict. It explains the causes and rise of Islamic fundamentalism, how terror became an instrument of political and military conflict, and why seemingly well-educated and sane individuals are taking drastic actions to voice their desperation. The burden of history is also invoked, as with the Palestinian-Israeli situation, the festering malaise at the heart of Middle Eastern consciousness and identity. -- Publisher description

Arabia without sultans : a political survey of instability in the Arab world by Fred Halliday( Book )

53 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fred Halliday writes:?The Arab Middle East is probably the most misunderstood of all regions; the one with the longest history of contact with the west; yet it is probably the one least understood. Part of the misunderstanding is due to the romantic mythology that has long appeared to shroud the deserts of the peninsula. Where old myths have broken down, new ones have absorbed them or taken their place. Now the Sheikh of Arabia has stepped down from his camel. Instead, through the delusive lens of the?energy crisis' he is seen to be riding a Cadillac and squeezing the powerless Western
The Middle East in international relations : power, politics and ideology by Fred Halliday( Book )

33 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The international relations of the Middle East have long been dominated by uncertainty and conflict. External intervention, interstate war, political upheaval and interethnic violence are compounded by the vagaries of oil prices and the claims of military nationalist and religious movements. Fred Halliday sets this region and its conflicts in context, providing on the one hand, a historical introduction to its character and problems, and, on the other, a reasoned analysis of its politics. In an engagement with both the study of the Middle East and the theoretical analysis of international relations, Halliday offers a compelling and original interpretation. Written for students, policymakers, and the general reader. Fred Halliday is Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics

19 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the early days of the Arab nationalist experiment to the emergence of Islamic fundamentalism and beyond, the intertwining of politics and religion in the Middle East has been a salient feature of the region's history. Fred Halliday addresses this complex relationship, considering nationalism and Islamism region-wide, Islamic movements in Turkey, Iran, and Tunisia, and the likely fate of the remaining monarchies in the Arab world."--Jacket

In Marxism and Philosophy Korsch argues for a reexamination of the relationship between Marxist theory and bourgeois philosophy, and insists on the centrality of the Hegelian dialectic and a commitment to revolutionary praxis. Although widely attacked in its time, Marxism and Philosophy has attained a place among the most important works of twentieth-century Marxist theory, and continues to merit critical reappraisal from scholars and activists today

Revolution and foreign policy : the case of South Yemen, 1967-1987 by Fred Halliday( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 2002 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a study of the foreign policy of South Yemen, the most radical of Arab states, from the time of its independence from Britain in 1967 until 1987. It covers relations with the west, including the USA, and with the USSR and China, and also highlights South Yemen's conflicts with its neighbours, North Yemen, Saudi Arabia and Oman. The author provides a detailed analysis of the foreign relations of one of the USSR's closest allies in the Third World and shows how conflicts within the country relate to changes in foreign policy. South Yemen has traditionally not been an easy country to study, both because it is so secretive and because the revolutionary regime still arouses such strong passions. Professor Halliday was able to visit the country and to make an outstandingly thorough study of the foreign policy of an Arab state

Political journeys : the openDemocracy essays by Fred Halliday( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the great contrarians of international relations scholarship, Fred Halliday was able to combine his understanding of the broad sweep of modern history with a profound knowledge of modern revolutions, the Middle East, and national movements. This collection of Halliday's political essays written for the online journal openDemocracy between 2004 and 2009 is proof of a subtle worldview that continues to generate questions: What is the relation between religion, nationalism, and progress? Is a new international order possible? When is intervention a force for progress? From the big headline topics such as the Iraq War to the unexpected comparisons of Tibet and Palestine, or Afghanistan and the Falklands, Halliday's writings provide a perennially surprising and enlightened guide to the major issues of international politics."--Publisher's website
Shocked and awed : how the war on terror and Jihad have changed the English language by Fred Halliday( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Far more than just a military conflict, the 'War on Terror' has been a struggle over values and meanings, a desperate contest for hearts and minds in which language has become the battlefield. In this highly original book, Fred Halliday takes us on a tour of this new war¿]zone, its artillery and trenches, minefields and booby-traps. Drawing on years of painstaking collation, Halliday shows how the 'War on Terror' has brought us not just new words, such as 'Gitmo', and new imports, such as 'jihad', but also new ways of using existing language, such as 'extraordinary rendition'. Scanning the pock-marked semantic landscape of the post 9/11 world, he uncovers hidden twists of phrasing and word associations, which in themselves tell a story about the violent clash of ideologies that has marked the opening of the 21st century. Part indispensable reference, part polemic, part entertaining snapshot of our times, 'Shocked and Awed' is a bristling arsenal of the 21st century's most potent weapons: words."--Publisher's description
Britain's first Muslims : portrait of an Arab community by Fred Halliday( Book )

16 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fear of the terrorist threat provoked by radical Islam has generated heated debates on multiculturalism and the integration of Muslim migrant communities in to Britain. Yet little is known about Britain's first Muslims, the Yemenis. Yemenis began settling in British port towns at the beginning of the 20th century, and afterwards became part of the immigrant labour force in Britain's industrial cities. Fred Halliday's groundbreaking research, based in Yemen and Britain, provides a fascinating case study for understanding the dynamics of immigrant cultures and the complexities of 'Muslim' identi
