Middle East Becoming a Periphery in the Modern World System Essay – Assignment Help

Can you help me understand this Political Science question?

In this assignment, please, follow only James Gelvin’s textbook and lectures (including the power-point presentations). You are evaluated here on the comprehension of world-system theory as applied to our region. The papers must be neither free-flowing essays nor detailed dissertations: no more than 5 pages, normally formatted.


— Ottoman Turkey at around 1500 looked a hugely successful and up-to-date gunpowder empire. Why did it stop expanding its conquests? Why did it stop improving its guns as well as building and other techniques?

— The price revolution as the West’s unexpected advantage. Who reaped the profits?

— What did Muhammed Ali-pasha try to achieve in Egypt after 1810?

— What was the problem with Balta Liman treaty?

— Why cotton became the ‘curse of Egypt’?

— What was the political problem with providing modern education to locals? For instance, who was Ahmed Urabi?

— Who dug the Suez canal? And who ended owning it?

— The role of international debt and stock-market panic of 1873.

— “We do not govern Egypt, we govern the governors” — what does this mean?

Avoid the “big” sophisticated words like ‘plethora’. Those who took my other classes before would know this already. Just look around: a most common student mistake in writing papers is the misuse of pompous words such as discourse, identity, sustainability.

The book is called “The Modern Middle East: A History – James L. Gelvin” the size of the pdf folder is too large to share. Is there another way I can share the book?

I also attached the necessary presentation that should also be helpful in writing the paper.
