For more than twenty-five years, The Middle East has met the needs of students, professors, and researchers seeking to understand the Middle East, an area of profound economic, political, and cultural significance. This classic work provides a balanced, informative, and readable examination of the many complex and controversial issues that make the Middle East so important as well as so volatile.
This tenth edition presents recent political and economic developments, along with the necessary historical context, concerning the Arab-Israeli conflict, U.S. foreign policy, the Persian Gulf region, Middle Eastern oil and gas, and the many facets of Islam. It also provides country profiles featuring historical and political events; country, regional, and thematic maps; and up-to-date charts, tables, and chronologies as well as an updated bibliography.
The Middle East has been a staple text in most college courses on the modern Middle East for many years, and it remains an essential part of academic and public library collections. Revisions in the tenth edition make this volume an even more important component of library collections serving patrons with a personal or professional interest in this crucial area of the world.
