"Gelvin evokes a fascinating tale of the intersection of the forces of progress, reformation, revolution and imperialism that have collectively defined the modern Middle East. His cogent and crisply written history now sets the standard for serious surveys of the region."--Ussama Makdisi, Rice University
"By far the most engaging survey of the modern Middle East that I have read in a long time. . . . clearly written, often humorous, accessible to students and non-specialists and theoretically sophisticated."--Dina Rizk Khoury, George Washington University
"An important and much-needed conceptual approach to the modern history of the Middle East."--Edmund "Terry" Burke III, University of California, Santa Cruz
