For undergraduate Political Science courses on the Middle East, Comparative Politics, and International Relations.

 

A multi-disciplinary introduction to the Middle East, Politics in the Middle East provides an overview of history, geography, cultures, and religions and leads up to the region’s Twenty-first Century conflicts, including the Iraq War. With its emphasis on basic concepts and vocabulary, and its use of illustrative case studies, Politics of the Middle East provides an exciting tool for the basic understanding of this very complex region.
