Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As Western powers attempt to redraw the map of the Middle East, Dan Smith uses his forensic skills to unravel this arena of confrontation and instability, from the Ottoman Empire to the present day. With customarily acute analysis, he highlights key issues and maps their global implications to explain why this region has become, and will remain, the focal point for international relations.

Updated Topics Include:

* Demographic data

* The Israel-Palestine situation

* The current war in Iraq

* The situation in Lebanon

* Refugees and migration

* Islam in the world

“A compact, versatile and politically imaginative work of reference.”—New Statesman
