    Steven C. Hause, William Maltby, "Western Civilization: A History of European Society"
    NXB: Wadsworth Publishing

    Completely revised with your students' success in mind, WESTERN CIVILIZATION: A HISTORY OF EUROPEAN SOCIETY offers a concise overview of the social and political forces that have shaped the West. In fewer pages than other texts, Hause and Maltby's narrative presents a social history of Western civilization within the essential contexts of major military and political events. The text's strong reliance on primary sources -- excerpts of original documents that flesh out the concepts covered in the narrative, tables and graphs that collect the raw social and economic data of history -- brings the reader right into the pages of history, giving them a fascinating look at the events that have shaped the world in which they live. To help students truly grasp history and succeed in the course, extensive pedagogical support complements Hause and Maltby's WESTERN CIVILIZATION. Within the text, a colorful new design and prominent subheads create a "virtual outline" that lets students quickly locate, read, and review key information. Captivating pedagogy -- an in-text pronunciation guide, critical thinking questions built right into the captions of the tables and graphs, and extensive end-of-chapter review materials -- involves students in the story of the West by getting them to engage with it.

    Tên sách: A History of the Middle East
    Định dạng: epub

    Giới thiệu:
    In his concluding chapter, ‘Prospects for the Twenty-first Century’, written two decades ago, Peter Mansfield proved remarkably prescient. He predicted the resurgence of an armed Islamic movement across the Middle East. He foresaw that Arab regimes, however slim their power-bases, would survive. But there was one prediction where he went badly awry. In the concluding paragraph of the History, Peter ventured that as the Cold War faded away, the United States would lose its raison d’être as a military presence in the Arab world, and ‘would hardly maintain its superpower status in the region’.
    Perhaps had Western policy-makers harkened, much of the subsequent bloodshed might have been averted. Certainly it is hard to argue that the Middle East is any better for the military intervention that followed. When he completed the first edition almost two decades ago, the United States was at the peak of its power. It was celebrating victory after chasing Iraq out of Kuwait; the mujahideen it backed in Afghanistan had won their jihad against the Soviet Union, and Arab states were for the first time preparing to sit down publicly with Israel to negotiate an end to their conflict.
    In hindsight it looks a more innocent age. US policies in a region ten thousand miles away have boomeranged, at a cost of thousands of American lives both at home and in the Arab world. After returning to war with Iraq, the US is beating a retreat with the country’s promised political and economic reconstruction still unrealized. In Afghanistan as well as many places elsewhere, the US is fighting its former allies. And after two decades of on-off negotiations, the promised end of conflict between Israel and the Arab world remains as elusive as ever. And under America’s watch hundreds of thousands of Middle Easterners have perished in continuing conflicts in Iraq, Algeria, Sudan and Israel/Palestine. US credibility in the region is in tatters.

    Giới thiệu:
    Throughout history, power has more often than not been wielded
    through terror—that is, by inciting fear. All despotic societies have been
    founded on fear, as have so-called totalitarian regimes in the modern era.
    Submission to the established order and to force has been most of hu-
    mankind’s sole avenue to security and, ultimately, to freedom. Without
    reaching all the way back to prehistory—itself ruled by terrifying inse-
    curity vis-à-vis nature, wild beasts, and other men—the use of terror to
    govern began at the very birth of organized society as a means of dis-
    suasion or punishment.
    Terreremeans “to make tremble” in Latin. The first Mesopotamian
    empire, that of Sargon of Akkad, was founded on terror. The same was
    later true of antiquity’s first military empire, the Assyrian, whose brutal
    methods of reprisal were intended to crush the spirit and break the will.
    Announced with warlike violence, terror remains suspended like a sword
    in times of peace over the heads of all who dare to rebel. In the despotic
    societies that make up the major portion of history’s fabric, it has served
    as the tool of enslavement and guarantor of mass obedience. State ter-
    ror, whether implicit or overt, has haunted the centuries as war’s bogey-
    man, the specter of mass murder. Once unleashed, it can set an example
    to constrain behavior without the necessity of fighting. The Mongols and
    Tamerlane used terror in this way to reduce cities without having to re-
    sort to siege.
