About the Author

Ernest Tucker is professor at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, USA, where he teaches courses on Middle Eastern and Central Asian history. He has published a collection of texts related to nineteenth-century Muslim leader Imam Shamil as well as a study of the eighteenth-century Iranian monarch Nadir Shah. Tucker has also contributed to numerous encyclopedias and dictionaries, as well as publications such as the Middle East Journal and Iranian Studies.


'Tucker's updated narrative is an artful balance of broad coverage and concise explanation. Students will be able to quickly assimilate the "big picture" presented in each chapter. But, those same chapters provide many productive points of departure for further analysis, discussion, and research. Reading The Middle East in Modern World History is like having both a great conversation with an enthusiastic TA who wants to tell you everything and a chat with an experienced professor who knows exactly what details are the most valuable windows on the past. It is hard to imagine another book that will serve students better, both as the first book they read about the Middle East and as the first book they'll seek out over the years to quickly remind themselves of the essential background to the complexities of the contemporary Middle East.'

Camron Amin, University of Michigan-Dearborn, USA

'Ernest Tucker's The Middle East in Modern World History hits the "sweet spot" for undergraduate textbooks, providing full and nuanced coverage of the history of this vital region in the modern era in engaging and readable prose. Tucker underscores the connections across the region as well as between the Middle East and the rest of the world to demonstrate the long-term implications of globalization. Of particular value in teaching are the discussion questions and substantive bibliographies for further reading found at the end of each chapter.'

Mark Stein, Muhlenberg College, USA
