Workers and Peasants in the Modern Middle East / Edition 1by Joel Beinin
Pub. Date: 09/28/2001
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Beinin (Middle East history, Stanford U.) presents a history of workers and peasants in the Middle East from the middle of the 18th century to the present. His approach is largely based upon the ideas of the Indian Subaltern Studies school, which proposes that histories of these groups cannot be written from the point of view of European imperial powers or entirely in terms of the nationalist movements that arose in opposition to them. The geographical focus is restricted to those countries that were once part of the Ottoman Empire.
