Making the Arab World: Nasser، Qutb، and the Clash That Shaped the Middle East

Tuesday 16/May/2017 - 10:25 AM

Gerges tells this story through an unprecedented dual biography of Nasser and another of the twentieth-century Arab world’s most influential figures—Sayyid Qutb، a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood and the father of many branches of radical political Islam. Their deeply intertwined lives embody and dramatize the divide between Arabism and Islamism. Yet، as Gerges shows، beyond the ideological and existential rhetoric، this is a struggle over the state، its role، and its power.

Based on a decade of research، including in-depth interviews with many leading figures in the story، Making the Arab World is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the roots of the turmoil engulfing the Middle East، from civil wars to the rise of Al-Qaeda and ISIS.

Fawaz A. Gerges is professor of international relations and Emirates Chair in Contemporary Middle East Studies at the London School of Economics and Political Science. He is the author of several acclaimed books، including ISIS: A History (Princeton)، The New Middle East، and The Far Enemy.
