I want to bring to your attention my newly published book Modernizing Marriage: Family, Ideology, and Law in Nineteenth- and Early Twentieth-Century Egypt published by Syracuse University Press: http://syracuseuniversitypress.syr.edu/spring-2015/modernizing-marriage.html.
H-Mideast-Politics, is an academic network where substantive information and analysis can be presented of Middle East current affairs and of its relevance to the foreign policy of states outside the region. The network takes the entire area from Morocco to Malaysia and from Kazakhstan to Somalia as its purview. The emphasis is on contemporary politics.
H-Net is looking for some new editors to run H-Mideast-Politics. I’ve done what I can to hold down the fort but we’d like to get the position filled with a team of people who know the field much better than I.
Recently my colleagues and I sent this CFP to H-net announcements, but this forum is so nicely suited to our intent! Thank you for bringing all these groups together.

H-Net is pleased to announce the launch of the World War I Crossroads, a collaboration between editors and networks on the Commons dedicated to the scholarly study and discussion of World War I and the centennial commemoration of the conflict. This new Crossroads network will produce original content, facilitate initiatives on the conflict across multiple H-Net Networks, and highlight World War I postings from anywhere on the H-Net Commons.
