Political Thought and Political History : Studies in Memory of Elie Kedourie
Different from the usual festschrift, this volume in memory of Professor Kedourie is limited to contributions by his former students. The far-reaching range of Professor Kedourie''s interests and the immense expanse of his horizons are revealed by the great diversity of subjects, fields and disciplines of dissertations supervised by him. Indeed, the ten articles included in this book testify to the wide range of subjects of interest to Professor Kodourie''s students. Following a survey of Elie Kedourie''s teaching of Middle Eastern history, the book is divided into two parts, each comprising five articles. The first part deals with philosophy, political thought and ideology and the second with history and politics. The subjects of these articles range from Schiller''s aesthetics to the failure of democracy in Iran; from the Russian conquest of the Caucasus in the 1840s to Arab strategies vis-a-vis Israel in the 1960s; and from Sun Yat-sen''s influence on Quadhfafi to the creation of modern Iraq. Thus people interested in various subjects - aesthetics, political thought, ideologies, Middle Eastern, Russian and Chinese history - should discover in this book articles of appeal.
