Ab>A History. Eugene Rogan has written an authoritative new history of the Arabs in the modern world. Starting with the Ottoman conquests in the 16th century, this book follows the story of the Arabs through the era of European imperialism and the superpower rivalries of the Cold War, to the present age of unipolar American power.
In this definitive history of the modern Arab world, award-winning historian Eugene Rogan draws extensively on Arab sources and texts to place the Arab experience in its crucial historical context for the first time. Tracing five centuries of Arab history, Rogan reveals that there was an age when the Arabs set the rules for the rest of the world. Today, however, the Arab world"™s sense of subjection to external powers carries vast consequences for both the region and Westerners who attempt to control it.
Updated with a new epilogue (on the Tunisian and Egyptian revolutions of 2011), The Arabs is an invaluable, groundbreaking work of history.
