The French Mandate for Syria and the Lebanon: The History and Legacy of France’s Administration of the Levant after World War I

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsThe United Nations is one of the most famous bodies in the world, and its predecessor, the League of Nations, might be equally notorious. In fact, President Woodrow Wilson’s pet project was controversial from nearly the minute it was conceived. At the end of World War I, Wilson's pleas at the Paris Peace Conference relied on his Fourteen Points, which included the establishment of a League of Nations, but while his points were mostly popular amongst Americans and Europeans alike, leaders at the Peace Conference largely discarded them and favored different approaches. British leaders saw their singular aim as the maintenance of British colonial possessions. France, meanwhile, only wanted to ensure ...

DEBACLE: The Persian Gulf War Revealed Volume 3

by Mark R. Gery

Volume 3 includes the balance of Part 3 of DEBACLE: The Persian Gulf War Revealed. The reader is first placed at Public Shelter No. 25 in suburban Baghdad, Iraq, early in the morning of February 13th, 1991, just as two US laser-guided bombs strike the undefended structure. Due to another mistake by the US Air Force, several hundred Iraqi civilians perished in a concrete caldron of fire, steam and smoke. While American military leaders attempted to blame Saddam Hussein for the tragic mishap, public outcry in the Middle East and beyond forced the Bush Administration to swing the remaining bombing campaign away from Iraq's capital at a critical juncture in the war. Volume 3 then outlines the competing political and military pressures in Washington for launching the main ground phase of the...

by Onur İnal

This book is an exploration of the environmental makings and contested historical trajectories of environmental change in Turkey. Despite the recent proliferation of studies on the political economy of environmental change and urban transformation, until now there has not been a sufficiently complete treatment of Turkey's troubled environments, which live on the edge both geographically (between Europe and Middle East) and politically (between democracy and totalitarianism).The contributors to Transforming Socio-Natures in Turkey use the toolbox of environmental humanities to explore the main political, cultural and historical factors relating to the country’s socio-environmental problems. This leads not only to a better grounding of some of the historical and contemporary debates on the...

by AARON Albers

March 19, 2003 and America is on the eve of war. In the Kuwaiti desert, thousands of young Americans and their coalition partners stand ready to start the war against Iraq, if ordered too. Many of them would be facing combat for the first time, and each of them carry their own thoughts and worries, which would change from day to day; the initial drive into Iraq and the early problems in the war, the weather and operational pause to the fall of Baghdad. And then getting home. Now 15 years after his involvement in the invasion, Aaron Albers commemorates the anniversary by sharing his story of a time when he was one of the thousands involved in the drive to Baghdad....

Explore the most enduring empire of the ancient Near EastFree History BONUS Inside!Few nations were able to not only parry but also defeat the mighty Roman Empire, rivaling it in almost all segments. One of those was the Parthian empire, cultural and traditional successor of the more famous Achaemenid Persian empire that was brought down by the Alexander the Great. Indeed, the Parthians are recognized as one of the toughest enemies the Romans ever fought, and rightfully so. Parthian soldiers put the Roman legions to the test, making them prove their worth. Yet by looking at the Parthian empire solely as the "great enemies of Rome," it is easy to overlook other important parts of Parthian history. Simply by changing our perspective, we are able to see that the Parthians were not only warri...

Few societies on earth are as privileged as the Kurds and Persians. Unlike other nations and continents, the people living in Mesopotamia, the Zagros mountains, and Persia have witnessed some of the key historical events affecting all humanity which were recorded in the sacred writings of the Jews. These include the dispersion of Noah’s grandchildren, the building of the tower of Babel, the deportation of the Jews, the arrival of the prophet Daniel, the rise of Queen Esther, the commissioning of Ezra the high priest, and the visit of the Magi to Bethlehem. Four Medo-Persian kings - Darius, Cyrus, Xerxes, and Artaxerxes - are mentioned in these writings. Furthermore, the primeval events of history took place in Mesopotamia, including the creation of Adam and Eve, the garden of Eden, the f...

From a nightmarish Libya under the deranged Moammar Qaddafi, to an exhausted, polarized and increasingly fanatical Egypt before the Arab Spring finally ripped the region to pieces. From the Lebanese border during the devasting war between Israel and Hezbollah, to Iraq in the grips of an insurgency mounted by the murderous precursor to ISIS.

Son of a Meddah

by NuFaShe

His parents had named him Sahl, meaning "easy," hoping that he would have a simple and happy life. Maybe if they had named him "difficult" it would actually have turned out that way. Born at the turn of the 20th century in the Ottoman Empire, Sahl had already experienced an earthquake, an assassination attempt on the sultan, the death of a family member, and his Empire's crushing defeat in the Balkans, which included a serious injury to his father, all before he was even a teenager. Hence, by the time World War I started, there wasn't really much Sahl hadn't been through. Until, of course, he finds who the Empire believes to be the root cause of all its problems and has sentenced to annihilation hiding in the back of his caravan.

The Term Democracy throughout the Islamic History

by Fatima Al-Barwari

The long-lasting swell of the „Arab Spring“ [arab. al-Rabīʻ al-ʻArabī], a Nations Movement which has extended from its Birthplace in Tunisia to the Arabian Peninsula and beyond, was at its core a national call for social and political change and security, fairness and equality under a noncorrupted rule of law. Most importantly it was a „Bread Revolution“ [arab. thawrat al-ʻaysh], reflecting the radical hardships of affording nourishments the people have been facing daily.For similar demands, the people of Egypt, Libya, Sudan, and Algeria aroused and infected States such as Syria, Yemen, and Bahrain. Through my researches I was aiming to discover the realism behind some voices chanting for Democracy during the revolutionary „Arab Spring“ uprisings all over the Middle East a...

The Pitfalls of Protection, based on research conducted in Afghanistan between 2009 and 2015, locates the struggles over gender violence in local and global power configurations. The author finds that aid flows and geopolitics have served as both opportunities and obstacles to feminist politics in Afghanistan. Showing why Afghan activists often chose to use the leverage of Western powers instead of entering into either protracted negotiations with powerful...

Israel's Edge: The Story of The IDF's Most Elite Unit - Talpiot

by Jason Gewirtz

How will Israel keep its strategic edge over an increasingly dangerous Iran? Israel has been preparing for this day by creating a special and secretive IDF unit called Talpiot.

Instead of being trained to fight, the few soldiers each year selected for Talpiot are taught how to think. In order to join this unit they have to commit to being in the army for ten years, rather than the three years a normal soldier serves.

Talpiots are taught advanced level physics, math and computer science as they train with soldiers from every other branch of the IDF. The result: young men and women become research and development machines. Talpiots have developed battle ready weapons that only Israel's top military officers and political leaders know about. They have also dramatical...

by Nile Green

A free open access ebook is available upon publication. Learn more at www.luminosoa.org. Persian is one of the great lingua francas of world history. Yet despite its recognition as a shared language across the Islamic world and beyond, its scope, impact, and mechanisms remain underexplored.

Color In Mind: The Golden The Black And The White In Islam

by r da costa vaughan

PREFACEIslam fathered color prejudice and racism. The Arabic Qur'an was the catalyst for the conception, the nurturing, and the religious tending of the ideas behind color racism. Subsequently these negative ideas were exported globally. This is the thesis of this book.The House of Islam, or dar al-Islam in Arabic, is no one particular location. It exists where anyone who has submitted to the Islamic belief system bows in prayer five times daily. Within these invisible temples, those of Islamic faith repeat the ritual statement of witness to their faith: "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of God."In addition to prayer rituals, Islamic practitioners annually must fast during the lunar month of Ramadan. They all are required to financially support their faith, and final...

The Epic of Kings- Hero Tales of Ancient Persia (Wisehouse Classics - The Authoritative Edition)

by Ferdowsi Tusi, Abuʾl-Qasim

The Shahnameh, also transliterated as Shahnama (“The Book of Kings”), is a long epic poem written by the Persian poet Ferdowsi between c. 977 and 1010 CE and is the national epic of Greater Iran.

It tells mainly the mythical and to some extent the historical past of the Persian Empire from the creation of the world until the Islamic conquest of Persia in the 7th century. Today Iran, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and the greater region influenced by the Persian culture (such as Georgia, Armenia, Turkey and Dagestan) celebrate this national epic.The work is of central importance in Persian culture, regarded as a literary masterpiece, and definitive of t...
