This work aims to explore the diverse facets of this contribution, looking at social, cultural and political areas of heritage and cross-cultural interaction.

Specialists on the region here adopt a multidisciplinary approach to the subject and their contributions include Peter Sluglett on The Urban Bourgeoisie and the Colonial State- Roberta Micallef on Turkish Women- Berna Turam on The Secular State and Revivalist Islam- Emma Jorum on Syrian State Politics- and Annika Rabo and Bo Utas on The Role of the State in West Asia.
