      The First World War in the Middle East is an accessibly written military and social history of the clash of world empires in the Dardanelles, Egypt and Palestine, Mesopotamia, Persia and the Caucasus. Coates Ulrichsen demonstrates how wartime exigen­cies shaped the parameters of the modern Middle East, and describes and assesses the major campaigns against the Ottoman Empire .   A further, postwar tour of the area reinforced his view that “actually Americans and British in the Middle East get along rather badly.” All this is now forgotten history.

      The East India Company really was too big to fail. So it was that in it was saved by history’s first mega-bailout. But unlike Lehman Brothers, the East India Company really was too big to fail.   East India Company, Australasia, Great Britain -- Colonies, East Asia -- History, South Africa Publisher London: W. H.
