Arab Nationalism As an ideology, AN is generally based on the notion that all Arabs belong to the same ethno-linguistic group. A majority of those who live in the Middle East likely would classify themselves as Arabs and belonging to an Arab nation an Arab nation that is divided (by the colonial powers) into over 20 “nation - states.” The reality of this “artificial division” has inspired many to call of unity but so far unity remains a distant dream. Many factors account for this, including lack of unanimity among the Arabs on the meaning of unity and the methods for its achievement. The slides below show illustrates visions and methods offered by many. Included, below, also some approaches that argued that the scope of unity should be limited to, for example, a certain society or geographic area. Before you read the slides, consider the next three first on minorities and the others on identity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
