(P/B) REVOLT IN THE DESERT
THE ABRIDGES EDITION OF "SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM"
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0177

The Arab Revolt of 1916-1918, when the disparate tribes of Arabia rose up as one great force to defeat an empire, was one of the most turbulent periods in the history of the Middle East and a pivotal element of the Middle Eastern arena of World War I. It sounded the death knell for the Ottoman Empire and paved the way for a new colonial power in the region - the British. It was T.E. Lawrence, a young army officer with a brilliant military mind and unmatched knowledge of the region and the Arab people, who - alongside the charismatic Faisal...

(P/B) TASTES OF BYZANTIUM
THE CUISINE OF A LEGENDARY EMPIRE
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0142

For centuries, the food and culinary delights of the Byzantine empire - centred on Constantinople - have captivated the west, although it appeared that very little information had been passed down to us. Andrew Dalby's "Tastes of Byzantium" now reveals in astonishing detail, for the first time, what was eaten in the court of the Eastern Roman Empire - and how it was cooked. Fusing the spices of the Romans with the seafood and simple local food of the Aegean and Greek world, the cuisine of the Byzantines was unique and a precursor to much o...

(P/B) RADICALIZED
NEW JIHADISTS AND THE THREAT TO THE WEST
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0289

As ISIS seeks to expand its reach in the Middle East, its territory serves as a base for training and operations for a new generation of jihadis. Thousands of young people from the West, primarily from Europe, have travelled to join ISIS, re-emerging as hardened fighters with military training and a network of international contacts. Many of these have now returned to their homelands, where it is feared they are planning a new series of brutal attacks. Peter R. Neumann here explains the phenomenon of the 'new jihadis', and shows why the th...

It has since become a fractured warzone which operates as a breeding ground for new terrorist movements including ISIS as well as the root cause of the greatest refugee crisis in modern history. In this important book, former Special Envoy of the Netherlands to Syria, Nikolaos van Dam, explains the recent history of Syria, covering the growing disenchantment with the Asad regime, the chaos of civil war and the fractures which led to an immense amount of destructi...

(P/B) DECLINE AND FALL OF THE SASANIAN EMPIRE
THE SASANIAN-PARTHIAN CONFEDERACY AND THE ARAB CONQUEST OF IRAN
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0124

I.B.Tauris in association with the Iran Heritage FoundationIt proposes a convincing contemporary answer answer to an ages-old mystery and conundrum: why, in the seventh century CE, did the seemingly powerful and secure Sasanian empire of Persia succumb so quickly and disastrously to the all-conquering Arab armies of Islam? Offering an impressive appraisal of the Sasanians' nemesis at the hands of the Arab forces which scythed all before them, the author suggests a bold solution to the enigma. On the face of it, the collapse of the Sasanian...

(P/B) WRITING HISTORY IN THE MEDIEVAL ISLAMIC WORLD
THE VALUE OF CHRONICLES AS ARCHIVES
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0287

In the 'encyclopaedic' fourteenth century, Arabic chronicles produced in Mamluk cities bore textual witness to both recent and bygone history, including that of the Fatimids (969-1171CE). For in two centuries of rule over Egypt and North Africa, the Isma'ili Fatimids had left few self-generated historiographical records. Instead, it fell to Ayyubid and Mamluk historians to represent the dynasty to posterity. This monograph sets out to explain how later historians preserved, interpreted and re-organised earlier textual sources. Mamluk histo...

(P/B) A SHORT HISTORY OF ATHEISM
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0155

The last few years have seen a remarkable surge of popular interest in the topic of atheism. Books about atheism by writers like Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens have figured prominently in bestseller lists and have attracted widespread discussion in the media. The ubiquity of public debates about atheism, especially in conscious opposition to the perceived social threat posed by faith and religion, has been startling. However, as Gavin Hyman points out, despite their prevalence and popularity, what often characterises these debate...

(P/B) A MODERN HISTORY OF THE KURDS
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0083

In this detailed history of the Kurds from the 19th century to the present day, McDowall examines the interplay of old and new aspects of the struggle, the importance of local rivalries within Kurdish society, the enduring authority of certain forms of leadership and the failure of modern states to respond to the challenge of Kurdish nationalism. Drawing extensively on primary sources McDowall's book is useful for all who want a better understanding of the underlying dynamics of the Kurdish question. (From the publisher)...

(H/B) WHAT THE WEST IS GETTING WRONG ABOUT MIDDLE EAST
WHY ISLAM IS NOT THE PROBLEM
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0286

The West's actions in the Middle East are based on a fundamental misunderstanding: political Islam is repeatedly assumed to be the main cause of conflict and unrest in the region. The idea that we can decipher Jihadist radicalization or problems in the Middle East simply by reading the Qur'an has now become symptomatic of our age. This dangerous over-simplification and the West's obsession with Islam dominates media and policy analysis, ultimately skewing intervention and preventing long-term solutions and stability in the region.

(P/B) CROSS VENERATION IN THE MEDIEVAL ISLAMIC WORLD
CHRISTIAN IDENTITY AND PRACTICE UNDER MUSLIM RULE
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0285

One of the most common religious practices among medieval Eastern Christian communities was their devotion to venerating crosses and crucifixes. Yet many of these communities existed in predominantly Islamic contexts, where the practice was subject to much criticism and often resulted in accusations of idolatry. How did Christians respond to these allegations? Why did they advocate the preservation of a practice that was often met with confusion or even contempt? To shed light onto these questions, Charles Tieszen looks at every known apol...

(P/B) A SHORT HISTORY OF THE BYZANTINE EMPIRE
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0215

The Byzantine Empire was one of the most impressive imperial adventures in history. It ruled much of Europe and Anatolia for a remarkable eleven hundred years. From Constantine I's establishment of Byzantium (renamed Constantinople) as his capital in 324 CE, until the fall of the city to the Ottomans in 1453, the Byzantine domain became a powerhouse of literature, art, theology, law and learning. Dionysios Stathakopoulos here tells a compelling story of military conquest, alliance and reversal, including the terrifying secret of Greek fir...

(P/B) GREECE, THE HIDDEN CENTURIES
TURKISH RULE FROM THE FALL OF CONSTANTINOPLE TO GREEK INDEPENDENCE
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0195

For almost four hundred years, between the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the Greek War of Independence, the history of Greece is shrouded in mystery: distorted by Greek writers and largely neglected by others. What was life really like for the Greeks under Ottoman rule? Was it a period of exploitation and enslavement for the Greeks until they were finally able to rise up against Turkish rule, as is the traditional, Greek nationalistic view? Or did the Greeks derive some benefit from Turkish rule? How did the Greeks and Turks co-exist ...

(P/B) STREET PHOTOGRAPHY
FROM ATGET TO CARTIER-BRESSON
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0071

Street photography is perhaps the best-loved and most widely known of all photographic genres, with names like Cartier-Bresson, Brassai and Doisneau familiar even to those with a fleeting knowledge of the medium. Yet, what exactly is street photography? From what viewpoint does it present its subjects, and how does this viewpoint differ from that of documentary photography? Looking closely at the work of Atget, Kertesz, Bovis, Rene-Jacques, Brassai, Doisneau, Cartier- Bresson and more, this elegantly written book, extensively illustrated w...

(P/B) ART AND PSYCHOANALYSIS
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0284

Often derided as unscientific and self-indulgent, psychoanalysis has been an invaluable resource for artists, art critics and historians throughout the twentieth century. Art and Psychoanalysis investigates these encounters. The shared relationship to the unconscious, severed from Romantic inspiration by Freud, is traced from the Surrealist engagement with psychoanalytic imagery to the contemporary critic's use of psychoanalytic concepts as tools to understand how meaning operates. Following the theme of the 'object' with its varying mater...

OCCUPATION, RESISTANCE AND CIVIL WAR
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0247

During the 1940s Greece was torn apart twice, first by World War II and second by Civil War.Beginning in 1941, the occupation of Greece by Germany was intensely brutal. Children starved on the streets of Athens. The Jewish population was decimated in the Holocaust. Heroic acts of resistance - performed in concert with the SOE - were met with vicious reprisals. When Greece was finally freed from Nazi rule in 1944, the fractured and embittered nation became engulfed in civil war, as conflict flared between the British and American-sponsored ...

(P/B) TURKEY
A MODERN HISTORY
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0082

This revised edition builds upon and updates its twin themes of Turkey's continuing incorporation into the capitalist world and the modernization of state and society. It begins with the forging of closer links with Europe after the French Revolution, and the changing face of the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century. Zurcher argues that Turkey's history between 1908 and 1950 should be seen as a unity, and offers a strongly revisionist interpretation of Turkey's founding father, Kemal Ataturk. In his account of the period since 1950, Zurcher ...
