  • My Father's Rifleby Hiner Saleem; Catherine Temerson

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2006; US$ 16.99

    A young Kurd comes of age in a war-torn land. This beautiful, spare narrative tells of the life of a boy named Azad--in fact the author, a Kurdish filmmaker--as he grows to manhood in Iraq during the 1960s and 1970s. Azad is born into a vibrant village culture, to a family that is proud of its Kurdish past and hopes for a free Kurdish future. He... more...

  • Ottoman Nizamiye Courtsby Avi Rubin

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 105.00

    A fresh look at one of the most important landmarks in the passage of the Ottoman Middle East to modernity during the late nineteenth century, this book explores the Nizamiye court system. The author offers an innovative conceptualization to serve as an alternative to common - yet poorly grounded - wisdoms about legal change in the modern Middle... more...

  • Chinese Indonesians and Regime Changeby Marleen Dieleman; Juliette Koning; Peter Post

    BRILL 2010; US$ 137.00

    The existing literature on Chinese Indonesians has so far tended to take an approach of either victimization and marginalization or a focus on elite businessmen and their economic influence. This volume takes a different perspective. The Chinese in Indonesia were not only innocent victims of history, but were simultaneously active agents of change.... more...

  • The Decline and Fall of the Ottoman Empireby Alan Palmer

    Faber & Faber 2011; US$ 23.32

    Like Charles II, the sick man of Europe was 'an unconscionable time dying.' Time and time again from the seventeenth century observers predicted the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, yet it outlived all its rivals. As late as 1910 it straddled three continents. Unlike the Romanovs, Hohenzollerns or Habsburgs, the House of Osman was still recognised... more...

  • Jerusalemby Simon Sebag Montefiore

    Orion 2011; US$ 17.82

    Jerusalem is the universal city, the capital of two peoples, the shrine of three faiths; it is the prize of empires, the site of Judgement Day and the battlefield of today's clash of civilizations. From King David to Barack Obama, from the birth of Judaism, Christianity and Islam to the Israel-Palestine conflict, this is the epic history of 3,000... more...

  • Levantby Philip Mansel

    John Murray 2010; US$ 21.17

    Levant is a book of cities. It describes the role of Smyrna, Alexandria and Beirut as windows on the world, escapes from nationality and tradition, centres of wealth, pleasure and freedom. By their mix of races and religions, they challenge stereotypes. France and Britain liberated the area through their schools, while conquering it through arms. They... more...

  • Religious Transformation in South Asiaby Christopher Harding

    Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 124.99

    In the last decades of the nineteenth century, urgent and unprecedented demands among oppressed peoples in colonial India drove what came to be called 'mass conversion movements' towards a range of Christian denominations, launching a revolution in South Asia's two thousand-year Christian history. For all the scale, drama, and lasting controversy... more...
