After a general introduction by Albert Hourani, the essays are arranged in four sections: reforming elites and changing relations with Europe 1789-1918; transformation in society and economy 1789-1918; imperialism and nationalism in the interwar period; and the Middle East since World War II. This revised edition contains a range of additional material on the history of the region since the 1990s.
