Agriculture contracted when the state was weak, and the zones of nomadic pasture increased. The man giving orders was thirty-one-year-old Sultân al-Atrash.
If a country is able to enhance its proximate causes of growth, then the joint effect of the proximate causes of growth and inclusive institutions will lead to much quicker growth. Using newly declassified papers from the British and French archives, James Barr brings this clandestine struggle back to life, and reveals, for the first time, the stunning way in which the French finally got their revenge. In 1914 a Serbian nationalist assassinated the heir to the throne of the Hapsburg Empire. How, in other words, did the notable class deliver the tacit consent or at least grudging acquiescence of those it sought to dominate in concert with the imperial power? A led by and largely supported by the local population occurred in Hama on 4—5 October 1925. By situating his study within a broader historical context, Gelvin has written a book that will be of interest to all who wish to understand nationalism in the region and beyond.
This discursive structure, I postulate, is built through dispersed and heterogeneous but power-laden statements from Robert the Monk and Hughes of Payens to Napoleon, Ernest Renan, Gustave Lebon, Winston Churchill, Lothrop Stoddard, Henry Kissinger and David Petraeus. Still, education and the government jobs it often brought were increasingly attractive. This Arab nationalism was largely fostered by educated urban elites — intellectuals, civil servants and former or serving officers in the Ottoman Army — living in great Arab cities like Damascus and Baghdad. The main goals of this article are to review historiographical trends and set new directions for late Ottoman history. This re-petition is seen as modelling the individual in the image of the Virgin Mary and, by this, exemplifying the saintly character of the devout.
Ti represivni režimi, u stalnom »ratu« sa svojim građanima i s hegemonijskim pretenzijama prema susjednim državama, politička su ostavština arapskog nacionalizma na kojoj počiva veliki dio odgovornosti za nasilje koje je pratilo slom Arapskog proljeća i posljedičnu moru bliskoistočne stvarnosti. On the same day Druze rebels attacked French troops in the Jabal. They invented rituals around those and fought under them during the Great Revolt. For Khoury, the rural-urban connection is fairly undefined, though he clearly acknowledges its importance, while Batatu subjects the relationship between urban and rural regions to broad thematic generalizations that cannot be sustained from region to region.

They sought a unified Greater Syria, including the French and British mandates of Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and Transjordan, independent and undivided by borders. . In 1922 French authorities considered Sultân al-Atrash a minor provincial outlaw in a country full of outlaws and rebels against the mandatory occupation. Batatu's analysis of the rise of Hâfiz al-Asad from a humble mountain village is unlikely to be matched. The British High Commissioner had more freedom to act because the government had only indirect interests in Palestine, and was thus subject to fewer pressures at home, and so policy remained relatively consistent throughout many shifts in government.
The Ottoman government responded by opening state preparatory schools in the imperial capital like the famous Galatasaray Lycée in Istanbul and eventually provincial preparatory or I'dâdiyya schools like Maktab 'Anbar in Damascus. Provence shows compellingly that the Great Syrian Revolt was a formative event in shaping the modern Middle East. Damascus was bombarded and air raided for several days. The mass uprisings had their surprising and creative dimensions; they emerged without any preceding state breakdown and they constituted the people as a sovereign subject in a way distinctive from anticolonial nationalism. The prominent position of the leading families depended both on access to state authority and on independent power rooted in the local society.

In the aftermath, when the guerrillas had withdrawn, the pro-independence forces once again mobilized brigades to protect the city's Christians from reprisals. Beyond it rose a second mountain range, the Anti-Lebanon, separating the fertile zone from the steppe and desert to the east.
