Drawing Borders in the Middle East after the Great War: Political Geography and ‘Subject Peoples’

Title:
Drawing Borders in the Middle East after the Great War: Political Geography and ‘Subject Peoples’
Authors:
Smith, Leonard V.
Abstract:
“Subject Peoples” arrived in the language of peacemaking after the Great War primarily as a way to understand post-imperial peoples of Central and Eastern Europe. As applied to the peoples of the former Ottoman Empire, however, peoples were categorized and assigned political characteristics according to specific schools of national political geography. British, French and American political geographers demarcated the ways thinking about the peoples of the Middle East that resonated throughout the century that followed.
