From the Back Cover:

"Informative and instructive about a fascinating region."
"Middle East Quarterly"
"A fine sourcebook and text on the Middle East."
"The Professional Geographer"
"This timely revision of this already highly regarded text is just what we need to keep us abreast of developments in the Middle East. The treatment of economic factors, including natural resources, ecology, and land use patterns, sheds much light on the potential for economic cooperation and competition in the region over the next decade. Combined with its concise summaries of the linguistic and cultural underpinnings of the area, this work provides us the background we need to place contemporary political developments in context."
Charles O. Cecil, US Ambassador, retired
