Fuccaro, Nelida and Freitag, Ulrike and Ghrawi, Claudia and Lafi, Nora, eds. (2015) Urban Violence in the Middle East: Changing Cityscapes in the Transition from Empire to Nation State. Oxford; New York: Berghahn. (Space and Place)

Abstract

Covering a period from the late eighteenth century to today, this volume explores the phenomenon of urban violence in order to unveil general developments and historical specificities in a variety of Middle Eastern contexts. By situating incidents in particular processes and conflicts, the case studies seek to counter notions of a violent Middle East in order to foster a new understanding of violence beyond that of a meaningless and destructive social and political act. Contributions explore processes sparked by the transition from empires — Ottoman and Qajar, but also European — to the formation of nation states, and the resulting changes in cityscapes throughout the region.
