28 FROMKIN, DAVID. A Peace To End All Peace: Creating The Modern Middle East 1914-1922.
Henry Holt and Company, New York: 1989. 0805008578 / 9780805008579 First American Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket in protective mylar cover. Very good condition. Library discard. 
Takes a fresh look at the Middle East viewing Allied policy from 1914 onwards as the culmination of the nineteenth-century Great Game, in whch Russia played a leading role. Fromkin reveals how and why the Allies came to remake the geography and politics of the Middle East, drawing lines on an empty map that eventually became the new countries of Iraq, Israel, Jordan and Lebanon. Focusing on the formative years of 1914 to 1922, when all seemed possible - even an Alliance between Arab nationalismand Zionism - he raises questions about what might have been done differently, and answers questions about why things were done as they were. Through its pages move some of the more fascinating figures of the twentieth century: Lloyd George, Woodrow Wilson, Lawrence of Arabia, Kitchener of Khartoum, Lenin, Stalin, Mussolini, Chaim Weizmann, David Ben Guior, Ibn Saud, Kemal Ataturk, and Winston Churchill. Includes an Index. "Wonderful . . . No book published in recent years has more lasting relevance to our understanding of the Middle East." - Jack Miles, Los Angeles Times Book Review

29 GLUBB, JOHN BAGOT. The Great Arab Conquests.
Hodder and Stoughton, London: 1963. First Printing. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition but dustjacket is worn. 
The fantastically short time in which this empire was built up, the ludicrous simplicity of its "administration" under the barefoot khalifs, these victories won through burning religious zeal and desperate courage by relatively untrained and unorganized armies make for exciting reading. No one-volume history has ever covered this remarkable material before, and this is a book made vivid and relevant by General Glubb's knowledge of the terrain and of the Arab character, his gift for seeing modern parallels, the care he has taken not to assume background knowledge of the period on the part of his readers, and the maps he has personally drawn. Includes an Index.

35 HOWARD, ROGER. The Oil Hunters: Exploration And Espionage In The Middle East 1880-1939.
Hambledon Continuum, London / New York: 2008. 184725232X / 9781847252326 First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The fascinating stories of the explorers, spies and entrepreneurs who led the hunt for oil in the Middle East from the 1880s to the outbreak of the Second World War. The Middle East had long been awash with rumors and legends of oil, rumors that gradually seeped into Western Europe. The Greek historian Herodotus had once described the existence of "oil-pits" in Mesopotamia, while Jebel Zeit, a mountain on the west coast of the Gulf of Suez, was known by the ancients as Mons Petroleus. However, the discovery that kerosene could be extracted from crude oil and used as fuel for light and heat in the late nineteenth century shifted the hunt for oil into high gear, particularly in the Middle East. Against the backdrop of British and Russian and increasingly American maneuverings for dominance in the region, Roger Howard explores the history of oil exploration in anecdotal style and with a lively pace. He brings to life forgotten figures such as Frank Holmes, revered by the Arabs as Abu Naft (the "Father of Oil") and Harry St. John Philby, father of the famous British double agent Kim Philby, as well as figures from the world stage such as Julius de Reuter, founder of Reuters News Agency, the Armenian oil magnate Calouste Gulbenkian and Chicago-born entrepreneur Charles R. Crane. Throughout the twentieth century, the demand for petroleum increased and it eventually became one of the most valuable commodities traded in the world market. The Oil Hunters illustrates how today's oil giants emerged in Persia but also Iraq (Mesopotamia), Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. British Petroleum, for example, was originally the Anglo-Persian Oil Company. Considered by many to be one of the most important events of twentieth century history, the discovery of Persian oil in 1908 is related here as a vivid adventure story of exploration and exploitation, peopled by eccentrics, adventurers and magnates. Roger Howard is a writer and broadcaster specialising in the Middle East. His most recent publication is Iran Oil: The New Middle East Challenge to America (2006). Includes an Index.

38 JACOBS, MATTHEW F. Imagining The Middle East: The Building Of An American Foreign Policy, 1918-1967.
University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill: 2011. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
As its interests have become deeply tied to the Middle East, the United States has long sought to develop a usable understanding of the people, politics, and cultures of the region. In Imagining the Middle East, Matthew Jacobs illuminates how Americans' ideas and perspectives about the region have shaped, justified, and sustained U.S. cultural, economic, military, and political involvement there. Jacobs examines the ways in which an informal network of academic, business, government, and media specialists interpreted and shared their perceptions of the Middle East from the end of World War I through the late 1960s. During that period, Jacobs argues, members of this network imagined the Middle East as a region defined by certain common characteristics - religion, mass politics, underdevelopment, and an escalating Arab-Israeli-Palestinian conflict - and as a place that might be transformed through U.S. involvement. Thus, the ways in which specialists and policymakers imagined the Middle East of the past or present came to justify policies designed to create an imagined Middle East of the future. Jacobs demonstrates that an analysis of the intellectual roots of current politics and foreign policy is critical to comprehending the styles of U.S. engagement with the Middle East in a post-9/11 world. Matthew F. Jacobs is assistant professor of history at the University of Florida. "A provocative book full of extraordinary archival research, Imagining the Middle East is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the background to America's collision with radical Islam during the last quarter of the twentieth century." - Douglas Little, Clark University, author of American Orientalism: The United States and the Middle East since 1945 "Jacobs takes a novel, compelling approach to the broad American experience in the Middle East during the formative years of U.S. national involvement there. This book makes a major contribution to the growing literature on the history of U.S. official and non-official interaction with the Middle East in the middle twentieth century." - Peter Hahn, professor of history, The Ohio State University
