Cambridge Middle East Studies has been established to publish books on the nineteenth- and twentieth-century Middle East and North Africa. The aim of the series is to provide new and original interpretations of aspects of Middle Eastern societies and their histories. To achieve disciplinary diversity, books are solicited from authors writing in a wide range of fields, including history, sociology, anthropology, political science and political economy. The emphasis is on producing books that offer an original approach along theoretical and empirical lines.
