The western territory of the Arabian Peninsula, the Hijaz is home to the two holy cities of Makkah and Medina and hosts millions of Muslim pilgrims annually. This book explores the legal history of the Hijaz, which has hitherto remained relatively hidden but which provides fascinating insights on the creation, failure, and afterlife of states.

Malik R. Dhalan focuses on the Hijaz as a region with a significant history of Arab self-determination. Tracing the origins of Islamic statehood back a thousand years, he shows how the Hijaz offers a model of the ideal state of Islam. Then, looking at Arab Revolt of 1916 and the short life of the Kingdom of Hijaz, he examines the ways in which autonomy and international participation intertwine to create modern states, exploring the tensions between these two forces as they can be seen in the modern Middle East, especially in countries such as Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. Reflecting on the current ills of the region and the very real danger of regional collapse—as well as the dangers of maintaining the status quo—Dhalan ultimately makes a compelling case for the Hijaz as an integrative solution for some of the Middle East’s territorial conflicts.
