Urban development in the Muslim world( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

War and revolution have focused the world's attention on the Middle East. Despite the headlines, the editors of this book state, "the economic, political, and cultural aspects of urban life in the Muslim world are hardly known to us." Contributors to this volume explore urban problems, urban development, and the practice of urban planning in the Muslim world. In both comprehensive analyses and detailed case studies, the contributors address the basic dilemma of development planning: how to integrate the force of tradition with the demands of modernity. Specifically, some of the topics covered include the examination of the idea of a uniquely "Islamic" city; the influence of Islam on the medinas of Tunisia and Morocco and on the development of Mecca and Delhi; and reconciling tradition and modernism in Tehran. Also covered are the comparative development of Sana'a and Cairo; the influence of oil on urbanization in the Persian Gulf; urban growth in Syria; and an overview of urban planning in the Arab world. This compendium is essential for specialists and students of the region, for international planning and development practitioners, and for those seeking insight into the complexities of this important but arguably least understood region of the world

The political economy of Iran under the Qajars : society, politics, economics and foreign relations, 1796-1926 by Hooshang Amirahmadi( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The political economy of Iran underwent the fundamental transition from feudalism to modernity from the early 19th to the 20th century: a period which was a vital watershed in Iran's historical development. This book provides a critical analysis of Iran's economic, social and political development and shows how the path to modernity, far from smooth, was hindered by both internal and international factors. These included a powerful monarchy with little interest in administrative and economic reform, a large aristocracy frequently holding vital provincial governorships and frustrating effective central government and a failure to create a modern civil service, military, banking, finance or communications - the essential infrastructure for economic development. Reformers were marginalised and business suffered. And the all-powerful ulema were a further brake on modernisation. On the international front, the rivalry of Britain and Russia compounded the problems: both acting to control Iran and to further their own interests. Hooshang Amirahmadi explores the roots of present-day challenges to modernisation and progress and, using a wealth of primary sources and original research, has produced a work which is invaluable for students of modern Iranian history, politics and Iran's political economy."--Publisher's website
