"Middle East Historiographies" examines Middle East history writing from the cusp of the twenty-first century. Internationally renowned scholars consider how individual historians, historical schools, and historical paradigms have shaped the study of the history of the Middle East over the twentieth century, chiefly after the First World War. Middle Eastern studies today cover a rich and varied terrain, yet the study of the profession itself has been relatively neglected. There is, however, an ever-present need to give serious attention to what the research has chosen to include and exclude and to become more consciously aware of shifts in research approaches and methods. This collection critically examines the evolving state of the art and suggests new directions for further research.
