Abstract

En 132/750, les Abbassides s’emparèrent du pouvoir au terme d’un mouvement dénonçant l’injustice des Umayyades. La réforme de l’appareil judiciaire, contribuant à affermir leur légitimité, fut une des réalisations majeures de la nouvelle dynastie. La centralisation de la justice, l’uniformisation juridique et l’étroite association des cadis au souverain firent de la judicature un instrument politique essentiel aux yeux du califat. Les Abbassides ne pouvaient pourtant prévoir les conséquences...

Abstract

Le pigeon voyageur a joué un rôle primordial en terre d'Islam dès le début du califat abbasside (fin du VIIIe siècle). Des vallées du Tigre et de l'Euphrate qui en furent sans doute le berceau, il gagna l'Orient comme l'Occident (Andalus et Sicile). Mais nul État ne lui attacha plus de prix que celui des Mamelouks qui couvrit l'Empire d'un dense réseau de colombiers, des rives de l'Euphrate en Syrie du Nord au bord de la mer Rouge en Égypte. Ces messagers des airs ont servi les souverains, en...

Abstract

This book is a study of the cultural and political history of Christian Iraq, the Church of the East, the so–called ‘Nestorians’. This history is seen through the Chronicle of Seert, a medieval Arabic Chronicle that reuses sources written several centuries earlier. This monograph aims to isolate different layers of composition and looks for trends in the choice of material and the agenda of their historians. Each layer of the text provides insight into the social construction of ‘orthodox belief’ in Iraq and the church as an institution. A central narrative is the growing power of the bishops (catholicoi) of the Sasanian capital of Ctesiphon, their apostolic heritage, and their alliance with the Persian shahs. The monograph also considers the relationship of the catholicoi with monastic and scholarly centres and with Christian communities of the West. In each of these cases, the material that the Chronicle includes shows us how independent historical traditions were annexed by a narrative focused on Ctesiphon and its bishops. The monograph begins in the fifth century, when a series of abortive alliances between church and shah generated small-scale persecutions. It continues this story into the sixth and early seventh, when the church witnessed considerable growth in numbers and prestige. At each stage, we can see Christians rewriting the past to accommodate a new political and social situation, turning a murky past into a glorious golden age. The book concludes with a final chapter on the church under Muslim rule, when the Chronicle was compiled.

Abstract

En dépit des relations multi-séculaires qui existent entre la France et le Levant, et bien que, durant la période du Mandat, les destinées de la France et de la Syrie aient été liées, l'histoire récente de la Syrie a été longtemps quelque peu négligée par la recherche française. Cependant ce pays occupe, dans le monde arabe, une place plus importante que ne pourraient le laisser supposer le chiffre de sa population ou ses ressources économiques. Sa position géographique, son long passé histor...

Abstract

The Iran-Iraq War were one of the longest and most devastating uninterrupted wars amongst modern nation states. It produced neither victor nor vanquished and left the regimes in both countries basically intact. However, it is clear that the domestic, regional and international repercussions of the war mean that 'going back' is not an option. Iraq owes too much to regain the lead it formerly held in economic performance and development levels. What then does reconstruction mean? In this book, Kamran Mofid counteracts the scant analysis to date of the economic consequences of the Gulf War by analysing its impact on both economies in terms of oil production, exports, foreign exchange earnings, non-defence foreign trade and agricultural performance. In the final section, Mofid brings together the component parts of the economic cost of the war to assign a dollar value to the devastation.

Abstract

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has been the subject of intense scrutiny in the West. Considered by many to be the most dangerous terrorist organisation in the world, it has become shrouded in numerous myths and narratives, many emanating from the US, which often fail to grasp its true nature.Against these narratives, Mohammad-Mahmoud Ould Mohamedou presents a bold new theory of ISIS. By tracing its genealogy and documenting its evolution in Iraq and Syria, he argues that ISIS has transcended Osama Bin Laden’s original project of Al Qaeda, mutating into an unprecedented hybrid form that distils postcolonial violence, postmodernity and the emerging post-globalisation international order.This book analyses ISIS from a social sciences perspective and unpacks its dynamics by looking beyond superficial questions such as its terrorist nature and religious rhetoric. It transforms our understanding of ISIS and its profound impact on the very nature of contemporary political violence.

Abstract

Navigating Borders into the Netherlands provides a unique in-depth look at human smuggling processes. Based on biographical interviews with smuggled migrants in the Netherlands, the study reveals considerable differences that exist in smuggling's underlying causes, how journeys evolve, and outcomes of the process. This research from an insider's perspective clearly demonstrates that smuggled migrants are not passive actors, there is a broad variety in types of smugglers, and interactions between migrants and smugglers largely determine how the smuggling process evolves.
