Arab History and the Nation-State : A Study in Modern Arab Historiography 1820-1980 Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: History of the Middle East series

Description

The study of Arab historiography and of the emergence of the Arab nation-state as an object of historical treatment is a matter of considerable current interest.

Despite its importance, no academic work has dealt with this subject as a major preoccupation of Arab historians and intellectuals.

This book, first published in 1989, discusses the development of modern Arab historiography and its study of the nation-state in the nineteenth century, and analyses the work of three contemporary Arab historians from Egypt, the Lebanon and Morocco.

An important and highly readable account, it reaffirms the importance of historiography and proposes a revision of the manner in which modern Arab thought has hitherto been classified and interpreted.
