James Gelvin - UCLA Professor of Modern Middle Eastern History

UCLA Professor Gelvin has written extensively on the making of the Modern Middle East, and here focuses on two key events in its history. The first was the construction of actual states and the Middle East state system in the aftermath of World War I. The second was the transformation of the Arab world itself, from the period following World War II up to the Arab uprisings of 2010-2011.
