The Middle East and the Making of the Modern World is an innovative interpretation of the Middle East, especially the region known as Greater Syria, as both a history and a geography. Written from a non-western perspective, Cyrus Schayegh’s book offers a much-needed challenge to how we talk about the formation of the modern world. A must-read for Middle East specialists, as well as for all who are interested in international history.—Nezar AlSayyad, author of Cairo: Histories of a City

Cyrus Schayegh has brought to life the interlocking imperial, national, local, urban, and regional layers of nineteenth and twentieth century Greater Syria. Using stories from interviews, memoirs, diaries, and photographs, he focuses on the many pathways that sustained connections across this territory and through one hundred years of history.—Betty S. Anderson, author of A History of the Modern Middle East: Rulers, Rebels, and Rogues
