Resurrecting Empire

Author Rashid Khalidi explores how the history of Western domination in the region has conditioned its people to resist outside control.

Khalidi Rashid, Resurrecting Empire, Western Footprints and America's Perilous Path in the Middle East Beacon Press, 2005.

Begun as the United States moved its armed forces into Iraq, Rashid Khalidi's new book examines the record of Western involvement in the region and analyzes the likely outcome of the West's most recent Middle East incursions.

Drawing on his knowledge of the political and cultural history of the entire region as well as interviews and documents, Khalidi paints a chilling scenario of the present situation while offering a tangible alternative that can help find the path to peace rather than Empire.
