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. Tracing five centuries of Arab history, Rogan argues the Arab world today is painfully conscious of its vulnerability to outside powers. This sense of subjection to external powers carries vast geopolitical consequences for both the region and the Westerners who attempt to control it. Updated with a new postscript on the Tunisian and Egyptian revolutions of 2011, The Arabsis an invaluable, groundbreaking and comprehensive account by one of the most respected authorities on the Middle East.
