The Eastern Mediterranean and the Making of Global Radicalism, 1860-1914

Professor Ilham Khuri-Makdisi is the author of The Eastern Mediterranean and the Making of Global Radicalism, 1860-1914 (University of California Press, 2010). In her work, Professor Khuri-Makdisi establishes the existence of a radical political trajectory spanning four continents and linking Beirut, Cairo, and Alexandria. She shows that socialists and anarchist ideas were regularly discussed, disseminated, and reworked among intellectuals, workers and dramatists. In situating the Middle East within the context of world history, Professor Khuri-Makdisi challenges nationalist and elite narratives of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern history.
