Destiny Disrupted

by Tamim Ansary, Destiny Disrupted Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Destiny Disrupted books, We in the west share a common narrative of world history—that runs from the Nile Valley and Mesopotomia, through Greece and Rome and the French Revolution, to the rise of the secular state and the triumph of democracy. But our story largely omits a whole civilization that until quite recently saw itself at the center of world history, and whose citizens shared an entirely different narrative for a thousand years. In Destiny Disrupted, Tamim Ansary tells the rich story of world history as the Islamic world saw it, from the time of Mohammed to the fall of the Ottoman Empire and beyond. He clarifies why our civilizations grew up oblivious to each other, what happened when they intersected, and how the Islamic world was affected by its slow recognition that Europe—a place it long perceived as primitive and disorganized—had somehow hijacked destiny. Entertaining and enlightening, Destiny Disrupted also offers a vital perspective on current conflicts.

Denn im »Gottesstaat« Iran spielt sich das Leben im Verborgenen ab. Schulmädchen tragen unter dem Tschador Jeans und Turnschuhe, untreue Ehemänner pilgern nicht nach Mekka, sondern nach Thailand, brave Hausfrauen drehen Pornofilme, Mul- lahs sagen per Handy die Zukunft voraus, und beim Schönheitschirurgen werden nicht nur Nasen gerichtet, sondern auch Jungfernhäutchen wiederhergestellt.

Die Araber

by Eugene L. Rogan, Die Araber Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Die Araber books, Die arabische Revolution wird, wenn sie Erfolg hat, ein ähnlich epochales Ereignis sein wie die friedliche Revolution von 1989 in Osteuropa. Mehr als 200 Millionen Araber zwischen Persischem Golf und Atlantik sind dabei, das Joch jahrzehntelanger despotischer Regime abzuschütteln und Anschluss zu finden an die freiheitliche, moderne Welt des Westens. Eugene Rogan, einer der besten Kenner der arabischen Welt, bietet mit seiner großen Geschichte der Araber eine exzellente Grundlage zum Verständnis der aktuellen Ereignisse in Ägypten, Syrien, Tunesien oder Libyen. Rogans Darstellung beginnt mit der Eroberung der arabischen Welt durch das Osmanische Reich zu Beginn des 16. Jahrhunderts und führt bis zum revolutionären Aufbruch unserer Tage. Es ist eine lange Geschichte der Unterdrückung und Ausbeutung, die Rogan eindringlich zu erzählen weiß. Aber auch die reiche Kultur dieser Länder und die vielen kaum bekannten Versuche der arabischen Völker in der Vergangenheit, sich gegen ihre Unterdrücker aufzulehnen und Freiheit und Wohlstand zu erlangen, werden anhand einer Fülle faszinierender Originalquellen anschaulich dargestellt.

Games Without Rules

by Tamim Ansary, Games Without Rules Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Games Without Rules books, By the author of Destiny Disrupted: An enlightening, lively, accessible, history of Afghanistan from 1840 to today, from the Afghan point of view, that illuminates how Great Power conflicts have interrupted an ongoing, internal struggle to take form as a nation. Five times in the last two centuries, some great power has tried to invade, occupy, or otherwise take control of Afghanistan. And as Tamim Ansary shows in this illuminating history, every intervention has come to grief in much the same way and for much the same reason: The intervening power has failed to understand that Afghanistan has a story of its own, a story that continues to unfold between, and despite, the interventions. Games without Rules tells this story from the inside looking out. Drawing on his Afghan background, Muslim roots, and Western and Afghan sources, Ansary weaves an epic that moves from a universe of village republics--the old Afghanistan--through a tumultuous drama of tribes, factions, and forces, to the current struggle. Ansary paints a richly textured portrait of a nation that began to form around the same time as the United States but is still struggling to coalesce; a nation driven by its high ambitions but undermined by its own demons, while every forty to sixty years a great power crashes in and disrupts whatever progress has been made. A compelling narrative told in an accessible, conversational style, Games without Rules offers revelatory insight into a country long at the center of international debate, but never fully understood by the outside world.

Die Unbekannte Mitte Der Welt

by Tamim Ansary, Die Unbekannte Mitte Der Welt Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Die Unbekannte Mitte Der Welt books, Jahrhundertelang war die islamische Welt das Zentrum der Zivilisation. Heute aber wird der Islam viel zu oft auf Islamismus und Terrorismus reduziert, scheinen wir dauerhaft gefangen in einer Konfrontationshaltung: »der Westen« gegen »den Islam«, »wir« gegen »die«. Der Hauptgrund für die gegenwärtigen Probleme liegt für Tamim Ansary in der Unkenntnis der islamischen Vergangenheit und der Missachtung ihrer Bedeutung auf westlicher Seite. Detailreich und spannend, mitreißend und lebendig zeigt er Weltgeschichte aus einer ganz anderen Perspektive: der Sicht der islamischen Welt. Indem er den Bogen spannt von den Kulturen des Zweistromlandes über das Osmanische Reich bis zum modernen Extremismus, lässt er den Leser das Wesen des Islam neu entdecken und verstehen. Ein wichtiges Buch zu einem der drängendsten Themen unserer Zeit.
