    I.B.Tauris 2004; US$ 14.95

    The oppressed yet highly sexualised woman of the Muslim harem is arguably the pivotal figure of Western Orientalism.

    I.B.Tauris 2011; US$ 14.95

    Nigeria is a country where petroleum production and polio are both booming, where small villages challenge giant oil companies, and scooter drivers run their own mini-state. The oil-rich Delta region at the heart of it all is, as Michael Peel shows us, a troublespot as hot as the local pepper soup. Through a host of characters, from the ‘Area Boys’... more...

  • Macedoniaby John Phillips

    I.B.Tauris 2004; US$ 14.95

    Macedonia is a Balkan powder-keg ready to explode. A bloody rebellion by Albanian guerrillas demanding equal rights to the dominant Slavs in Macedonia killed and wounded hundreds of people, many of them innocent civilians, and raised fears that the crisis would suck in surrounding Kosovo, Albania, Bulgaria and Greece. International intervention brought... more...

  • Understanding Iraqby William R. Polk

    I.B.Tauris 2005; US$ 7.12

But 12,000 years of history can be intimidating. In Understanding Iraq, one of the world’s most respected Middle East spectators provides a highly readable yet intelligent digest, taking the reader... more...

  • Lost and Found in Russiaby Susan Richards

    I.B.Tauris 2010; US$ 14.95

    Far from Moscow and St Petersburg, there lies another Russia. Overlooked by the new urban élites and almost unknown to the West, in the great provincial hinterlands of the Volga River and Siberia, Russians struggle to reconcile their old traditions with a new and unfamiliar world. Returning again and again, for over a decade, to the deep heartland... more...
