The End of Modern History in the Middle East

Bernard Lewis looks at the new era in the Middle East.

There is enough in the traditional culture of Islam on the one hand and the modern experience of the Muslim peoples on the other, he explains, to provide the basis for an advance toward freedom in the true sense of that word.
