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

Synopsis:

Praise for Dan Smiths other atlases:

The State of the World Atlas is something else—an occasion of wit and an act of subversion. These are the bad dreams of the modern world, given color and shape and submitted to a grid that can be grasped instantaneously.”—New York Times

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