About this title
The Middle East is a balanced, informative, and politically neutral guide that helps readers understand the complex and controversial issues that influence the volatile Middle East. Neither overly scholarly nor espousing a particular point of view, this book is an even-handed treatment that provides an excellent grounding in the region.The Ninth Edition of The Middle East starts with an examination of the current political conditions that ebb and flow through the entire region. What are the prospects for an independent Palestine? How will the changing party control in Israel alter the political landscape of the region? What have been the major U.S. policy objectives in the region under President Clinton?Extensively reviewed and updated by Middle East scholars and experts, all chapters have been thoroughly reviewed and updated for this edition, and the chapters on the Arab-Israeli conflict and U.S. policy have been extensively revised to reflect new developments since the volume was last published in 1994. Includes in-depth profiles of 12 Middle East nations, detailed chapters covering the history, cultural roots, current role, and future importance of such major topics as the role of Islam, the role of oil, and tensions in the Persian Gulf area.The Middle East provides a historical context to help readers understand events and issues that shape the dynamics of this all-important region of the world. Also included are biographical sketches of the most prominent government leaders in the region, a chronology of major events from 1900 to 1998 organized by country, key historic documents, and a bibliography that points the way to further research. Also illustrated throughout withmaps, sidebar information boxes, and tables of important data.
