Editorial Reviews


"the standard history" "excellent account" "detailed analysis" "casts light on many neglected subjects" "particularly interesting" "successful application of Joseph Kostiner's concept of the evolution of the tribal chieftaincy" "based his book on a careful and systematic use of the appropriate sources" "outstanding study"

-William Ochsenwald,Middle East Journal

"Teitelbaum's thoroughly researched and lucidly presented study" "Teitelbaum provides the (surprisingly) first account of this state's existence whose importance has become apparent only in retrospect. He does it so well that one wishes the book were longer."

-Daniel Pipes,Middle East Quarterly

"Josh Teitelbaum uses the concept of the tribal chieftaincy to describe the short-lived 'state' of Sharif Husain and thereby fills an important void in the research."

-Guido Steinberg,Orient

"This study…fills a significant gap in the history of the 20th century Middle East" "Well-researched" "[suitable for] graduate students and faculty"

-J.W. Walt,Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries

"Teitelbaum recreates the political, economic, military and social history of the Hijazi kingdom" "successfully recreates the structure of the rising state" "recommended" "enriches our understanding"

-Madawi Al Rasheed,
