About the book >.>.> Bill Cleveland passed away on September 28 2006 following years of struggle with leukemia and related complications. Just weeks earlier Bill had officially retired from the Department of History at Simon Fraser University where his skill and dedication in the classroom were widely acclaimed. The first edition of Bill’s textbook published in 1994 concluded with an initial assessment of the significance of the 1991 Gulf War as a major turning point in the modern history of the region. The textbook was revised for republication in 2000 2004 and 2008. These editions were able to observe more clearly the patterns of continuity and change that had unfolded since the Gulf War and reflect on both the 2001 al-Qa’ida attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center and the 2003 US invasion of Iraq. In the fifth edition published in 2013 a new Part Six “Challenges to the Existing Order: The Middle East in the 1990s and 2000s” was created to identify more clearly the development of historical trends since the Gulf War: the rise and fall of the Oslo peace process; the development and evolution of Islamist movements and institutions in Turkey Iran and Lebanon; the efforts of the United States to assert its hegemony; and the dramatic Arab uprisings of 2011. This sixth edition expands on the regional impact of all of these far-reaching developments. Also new to this edition are the “Key Events” timelines that precede each of the six parts and the List of Major Rulers that can be found with the Glossary at the end of the book.
