Modern Intellectual and Political History

of the Middle East

Syracuse University Press’s interdisciplinary series is dedicated to the dissemination of theoretically informed works dealing with the praxis of intellectual and sociopolitical change in the region since the eighteenth century. The overall aim of this series is to move beyond the prevalent pseudo-dialogue between Western and Middle Eastern intellectuals. We believe that it is still possible to move the terms of debate toward a more critical understanding of one another’s positions. A sustained effort will be made to present the history and vicissitudes of the Middle East from local perspectives. To this end, we wish to encourage the translation and publication of works of modern critical thought written in the languages of the Middle East. The series will also consider critical manuscripts by Middle Eastern and Western intellectuals that fall within the following broadly defined topics relevant to the Middle East:
  • Orientalism and Occidentalism
  • The Historiography of Middle Eastern Encounters with Western Modernity
  • The Legacy of Colonialism, Imperialism, and Globalization
  • State Formation, Civil Discord, and Foreign Policy
  • The Genesis of Social Movements and Political Parties
  • The Politics of National Identity and Cultural Transition
  • Modern Islamic Philosophical and Political Discourse
  • Literary Figures and Genres
  • Biographies or Memoirs of Intellectuals, Scholars, Politicians, and Activists
The Modern Intellectual and Political History of the Middle East series includes scholarly books, books of great public interest, translations, texts, and reprints of classic works.
