The Modern Middle East

A History

Fifth Edition

James L. Gelvin

  • Offers an underlying argument that the eighteenth century marked a new phase in the evolution of world history that would redefine the Middle East forever
  • Instead of presenting students with a recital of dates and facts, Gelvin lets them in on the debate that has driven the dramatic developments of the Middle East since 1750
  • Gelvin's humorous and conversational writing style is comprehensive, lucid, and nuanced
  • Includes fifteen vignettes, thirty documents, and thirteen maps
  • A Companion Website at www.oup.com/he/gelvin5e offers chapter study quizzes, flashcards, and interactive timelines and maps for students and a Test Bank and PowerPoint slides for instructors

New to this Edition:

  • Revisions to every chapter, including extensive changes to Chapters 13 and 16-18
  • An entirely new conclusion, which includes two new maps: "The Shrinking ISIS Caliphate" and "Saudi-Iranian Competition"
  • Two new Vignettes: "Drawing Boundaries (I)" in Chapter 11 and "The Land Where the Sun Sets" in the Conclusion
  • Revisions and updates to the Timeline, the Glossary, and the Suggested Readings sections
  • A Companion Website at www.oup.com/he/gelvin5e offers chapter study quizzes, flashcards, and interactive timelines and maps for students. For instructors it provides a testbank and PowerPoint slides.
