Le monde arabe et l'Islam sont présents chaque jour dans l'actualité. Les tensions et les mouvements qui les animent semblent incompréhensibles à nombre d'entre nous. Pourquoi les chiites se battent-ils contre les sunnites ? Qu'est-ce qu'un califat ? Qu'est-ce qu'un «chrétien d'Orient» ? D'où vient l'islamisme ? Il y a un moyen simple de répondre à toutes ces questions : remonter dans le temps pour comprendre l'origine des choses. Avec la rigueur historique et le talent de conteur qui ont fait le succès de son best-seller Nos ancêtres les Gaulois et autres fadaises, François Reynaert déroule le fil d'une histoire passionnante et trop méconnue. Et chaque étape nous aide à penser autrement, nous informe, nous éclaire.

Des grands empires de l’Antiquité à la chute de l’URSS, de l’Europe de Charlemagne au Japon du xixe siècle, de l’Asie des Mongols à l’Afrique de la décolonisation, cet ouvrage nous convie à un voyage extraordinaire au fil des siècles. Procédant par étapes chronologiques, il suit l’évolution des grandes civilisations les unes par rapport aux autres. Il réussit en même temps à nous faire comprendre la façon dont chaque peuple considère son passé. Nous avons tous en tête aujourd’hui l’importance nouvelle de la Chine, de l’Iran, de l’Inde. Nous percevons le rôle essentiel que vont jouer l’Afrique et l’Amérique latine. Nous voyons à quelle vitesse la montée de nouvelles puissances reconfigure le monde. C’est pourquoi il paraît urgent de mieux connaître son histoire. Journaliste et écrivain, auteur notamment du succès Nos ancêtres les Gaulois et autres fadaises (Fayard, 2010), François Reynaert est passionné d’histoire. Il a étudié les œuvres des meilleurs spécialistes et voyagé à travers les continents pour rédiger cet ouvrage dont le but est double. Offrir une synthèse simple et claire des cinquante siècles qui nous précèdent et donner au lecteur une vision globale du monde qui nous entoure.

Les données de l'Organisation mondiale du tourisme font observer une activité touristique dans le monde arabe qui représente 6,2% du marché mondial, avec un accroissement prévu pour la période 2020-2030. S'interroger sur la place du tourisme et du loisir, et leur accessibilité dans les sociétés du monde arabe devient nécessaire d'autant que ces aspects sont abordés ici selon des perspectives principalement disciplinaires. A partir de divers cas d'études, les auteurs proposent une réflexion sur la mise en tourisme des territoires aux plans scientifique, géopolitique, historique, urbanistique, sociologique et politique.

There is widespread concern today about the “radicalization” of young muslim men, and the deprived areas of Western cities are believed to have become breeding grounds of home-grown extremism. But how do young Muslims growing up in the cities of the West really live? This book takes us beyond the rhetoric and into the housing estates on the outskirts of Paris to meet Adama, Radouane, Hassan, Tarik, Marley, and a shadowy figure whose name suddenly and brutally became known to the world at the time of the Charlie Hebdo shootings: Amédy Coulibaly. Seeing Amédy through the eyes of close friends and other young Muslim men in the neighbourhoods where they grew up, Fabien Truong uncovers a network of competing loyalties and maps the road these youths take to resolve the conflicts they face: becoming Muslim. For these young men, Islam stands, often alone, as a resource, a gateway – as if it were the last route to “escape” without betrayal and to “fight” in a meaningful and noble way. Becoming Muslim does not necessarily lead to the radicalized “other”. It is more like a long-distance race, a powerful reconversion of the self that allows for introspection and change. But it can also lead to a belligerent presentation of the self that transforms a dead-end into a call to arms.

The definitive history of the Middle East, thoroughly revised and updated "The best overall survey of the politics, regional rivalries and economics of the contemporary Arab World." -The Washington Post One of the most crucial, volatile, and complex regions of the modern world, the Middle East has long confounded the dreams of conquerors and peacemakers alike. This now-classic book, fully updated to 2012 and still the essential work on the subject, follows the historic struggles of the Middle East from Napoleon’s campaign in Egypt and Syria, through the slow decline and fall of the Ottoman Empire, to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the history of Islam and its recent resurgence. For this fourth edition, Economist correspondent Nicolas Pelham contributes an extensive new section examining recent developments throughout the Middle East, including the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, the situation in Iran, the region’s relations with the United States under President Obama, the Arab Spring, and more.

In his disturbing and timely book Jean-Pierre Filiu lays bare the strategies and tactics employed by the Middle Eastern autocracies, above all those of Syria, Egypt, Yemen and Algeria, that set out to crush the democratic uprisings of the 'Arab Revolution.' In pursuit of these goals they turned to the intelligence agencies and internal security arms of the 'deep state,' the armed forces, and to street gangs such as the Shabiha to enforce their will. Alongside physical intimidation, imprisonment and murder, Arab counter-revolutionaries discredited and split their opponents by boosting Salafi-Jihadi groups such as Islamic State. They also released from prison hardline Islamists and secretly armed and funded them. The full potential of the Arab counter-revolution surprised most observers, who thought they had seen it all from the Arab despots: their perversity, their brutality, their voracity. But the wider world underestimated their ferocious readiness literally to burn down their countries in order to cling to absolute power. Bashar al-Assad clambered to the top of this murderous class of tyrants, driving nearly half of the Syrian population in to exile and executing tens of thousands of his opponents. He has set a grisly precedent, one that other Arab autocrats are sure to follow in their pursuit of absolute power.

Faten’s happy life in her village comes to an abrupt end when her father arranges for her to work as a servant for a wealthy Beirut family with two spoiled daughters. What does a bright, ambitious seventeen-year-old do when she is suddenly deprived of her friends, family, education and freedom? Could the mysterious, wealthy young man who lives in the next apartment building help? When Faten finally manages to make contact with Marwan, a musician and engineering student, he helps her figure out a way to pursue her studies in secret. Even against the uncertain backdrop of the civil war, their romance develops, as the two conspire to exchange notes and meet at an idyllic seaside cafe. But in Lebanese society the differences in religion, class and wealth are stacked against them, and their parents have very different ideas about what their futures should be. When Marwan’s mother chooses a girl who will make him a suitable wife, Faten must pick up the pieces of her life and move forward. She does so, despite the odds, pursuing a job, an education and her independence. And, in the end, it seems there may be room in her life yet for romance, and hope for a future where young people can determine their own destinies. An engaging and lucidly written coming-of-age novel. Faten struggles to fulfill her potential in the midst of her society’s rigid expectations. She’s a nuanced, complex protagonist that any teenager can relate to — stubborn, impulsive and full of longing, but with the determination and smarts to keep her real dreams in sight.
