Book description

The Routledge Handbook of the History of the Middle East Mandates provides an overview of the social, political, economic, and cultural histories of the Middle East in the decades between the end of the First World War and the late 1940s, when Britain and France abandoned their Mandates. It also situates the history of the Mandates in their wider imperial, international and global contexts, incorporating them into broader narratives of the interwar decades. In 27 thematically organised chapters, the volume looks at various aspects of the Mandates such as:

  • The impact of the First World War and the development of a new state system 
  • The impact of the League of Nations and international governance
  • Differing historical perspectives on the impact of the Mandates system
  • Techniques and practices of government
  • The political, social, economic and cultural experiences of the people living in and connected to the Mandates.

This book provides the reader with a guide to both the history of the Middle East Mandates and their complex relation with the broader structures of imperial and international life. It will be a valuable resource for all scholars of this period of Middle Eastern and world history.
