The fourth edition of the acclaimed The Middle East and the United States brings together scholars and diplomats from the Middle East, Europe, and North America to provide an objective, cross-cultural assessment of US policy toward the Middle East. The new edition has been thoroughly and thoughtfully reorganized, revised, and updated to include five new chapters on topics such as the 2003 war in Iraq and its aftermath, the US promotion of democracy in the region, and recent developments in the Arab-Israeli arena.
