Arab World Today

Arab World Today Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Scholars and the concerned public have long relied on William Polk for comprehensive and insightful analysis of the culture and politics of the Arab world. The Arab World Today, a thoroughly revised and expanded version of earlier editions, including The Arab World of the American Foreign Policy Library, covers recent developments such as the growth of population, differing rates of industrialization, Egyptian-Israeli peace efforts, the Lebanese maelstrom, terrorism, the impact of Islamic fundamentalism, and the enormous influence of the ever-changing oil market on economic and political life. In addition, the book examines the rarely analyzed but significant cultural, social, and geopolitical developments that are crucial determinants of recent happenings, and includes the best available statistics and information, from which Polk reevaluates and recasts outmoded perceptions.

Book News Annotation:
