This is a fascinating, broad-ranging survey of the rich history and culture of the Muslim world, featuring primary documents from the era of Muhammad to the present, newly revised and expanded to include recent dramatic events. The Muslim world is tremendously rich and diverse, yet few Westerners are familiar with the writings and teachings of a culture that is at the forefront of world events. In their insightful anthology "The Middle East and Islamic World Reader", historians Marvin E. Gettleman and Stuart Schaar have assembled a broad selection of documents and contemporary scholarship to give a view of the history of the peoples from the core Islamic lands, from the Golden Age of Islam to today. With carefully framed essays beginning each chapter and brief introductory notes accompanying over seventy readings, the anthology reveals the multifaceted societies and political systems of the Islamic world. Selections range from theological texts illuminating the differences between Shiite and Sunni Muslims, to diplomatic exchanges and state papers, to memoirs and literary works, to manifestos of Islamic radicals.This anthology spans the distance from Tunisia to India through writings by such key figures as the early Muslim historian Ibn Khaldun, Turkish founding father Kemal Ataturk, Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon, and the Iranian revolutionary leader Ayatollah Khomeini. The readings chart the effects of the Islamic world's interactions with outsiders - from the invasions of Central Asian nomads and crusading Europeans in the Middle Ages, to European colonization in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries - as well as its own internal evolution, through accounts of peasants, urban workers, and the experience of Muslim women. This newly revised and expanded edition covers the dramatic changes in the region since 2005, and the popular uprisings that swept from Tunisia in January 2011 through Egypt, Libya, and beyond. "The Middle East and Islamic World Reader" is a fascinating historical survey of complex societies that - now more than ever - are crucial for us to understand.within the Enterprise 281 Chapter 15: Lean across Industries 305 Chapter 16: Real-Life Lean 321 Part VI: The Part of Tens 345 Chapter 17: Ten Best Practices of Lean 347 Chapter 18: Ten Pitfalls to Avoid 353 Chapter 19: Ten Places to Go for Help 361 Glossary 369 Index 373and Deciding on a Direction 190 7.4 Selecting the Most Appropriate Route 194 7.5 Instituting a Practical IA Process 213 7.6 Contempory Challenge--CEA Good Practice 222 7.7 Summing Up 225 8.
