Pamphlets

The Pamphlet collection comprises approximately 5000 volumes of work, related to Turkey, Iran, Israel and the Arab world.  Publications have been divided into 20 countries and areas to include: Trucial States, GCC and the UAE.   

Materials have been organised into countries and areas, and each country has been further divided into four broad subject headings:

i. Economy. This includes topics such as development, industry, agriculture, labour law and market. The subject is further refined and sub-divided, where possible. An example is Iraq, where agricultural related pamphlets have been categorised separately.

ii. Political History. This includes topics such as diplomatic history, general history, biographies & memoirs.  The subject is further refined and sub-divided, where possible.  An example is Egypt, where publications related to "Nationalism" have been categorised separately. Or, Iran, where there is a large collection of materials from 3 opposition groups to Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi.  

iii. Politics and Government. This includes political decisions, acts and legislation.  The subject is further refined and sub-divided, where possible. For example, on Tunisia, Habib Bourguiba's speeches have been categorised separately.  This section comprises 178 publications in three languages: Arabic, English and French.

iv. Social Life. This includes a wide range of topics from education and travel guides to religious and ethnic minorities. The subject is further refined and sub-divided, where possible.  An example is Turkey, where publications related to "Armenians" have been categorised separately.

The above subject division has not been applied to: Trucial States, GCC and the UAE. Instead, the materials have been divided according to the number of member of states in each group.
