This book deals with British involvement in the Middle East from the mid-nineteenth to the early twenty-first century. Encompassing a wide range of topics -- including Britains imperial legacy; Palestine, Israel and the Jews; and the contemporary Middle East -- it examines Britains role in Egypt, the Levant, the Fertile Crescent, and the Gulf. The twenty scholar/contributors are renowned specialists, and have contributed original research in order that the scope and purview of this work will fill a lacuna in the literature on Britains role in the region.
