Lüdke, Dr. Tilman
The Versailles Treaty and its Successors (particularly the Treaties of Sevres and Lausanne) had a disastrous effect on the Ottoman Middle East. The contribution argues that the political and geographic arrangements laid down in these treaties bear a
heavy responsibility for the ongoing conflicts and tensions of the region up to the present time.
Under pressure of the USA the Org. Gehlen/ the BND became active in the Middle East shortly after the end of World War II. The publication deals with its activities in various countries of the Middle East during the 1950s and 1960s.
