What Went Wrong?: Western Impact and Middle Eastern Response


Show Synopsis

Why did the most advanced civilization in the world lose its power and fall under the domination of others? This book examines how Middle Easterners responded to Western challenges in war, technology, sciences, religion, gender relations and other areas between the 18th and 20th centuries. It reviews the different ways in which the question of what went wrong has been formulated, the various diagnoses of what ails the Middle East, and the prescriptions for its cure.

Difficult Read

This book provides a great background on the decline of the muslim empire, but is pretty difficult to read at times. The author assumes that the reader already has a profound background in middle eastern history and western civilizations.
