response to European political and cultural domination,
culminating in a series of military coups in the mid-20th
century in Egypt, Algeria, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Libya.
This movement heralded the dawn of modern, independent
nations that would close the economic, social,
scientific, and military gaps with the West while
building a unity of Arab nations.
