Contending Visions of the Middle East (2ND 11 Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Zachary Lockman's informed and thoughtful history of European Orientalism and U.S. Middle East studies, the 'clash of civilizations' debate and America's involvement in the region has become a highly recommended and widely used text since its publication in 2004. The second edition of Professor Lockman's book brings his analysis up to date by considering how the study of the Middle East has evolved in the intervening years, in the context of the U.S. occupation of Iraq and the 'global war on terror'.

Synopsis:

This second edition considers how the 'global war on terror' has changed the way the West views the Islamic world.
