Sovereign Creations: Pan-Arabism and Political Order in Syria and Iraq
"Pan-Arab unionism ignited passions and dominated politics in the Middle East throughout the 1950s and 1960s and has continued to reassert itself periodically. In this elegantly written study, Malik Mufti investigates the persistence and the failure of pan-Arab initiatives, examining their significance in the political development of Syria and Iraq."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
