H-Levant is a moderated network for those interested in the scholarly discussion of the modern history and culture of the countries of the Eastern Mediterranean. Called "the Levant" in English and "al-mashriq" in Arabic, the region today includes Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, the Palestinian territories, Jordan and parts of Turkey. While most of the inhabitants are Arabic-speaking Muslims, there are significant populations of Jews and Christians. And although the peoples of the region are diverse, they possess a shared history stretching back millenia.
