Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sometimes it seems as if peace will never come to the Middle East, and many people find the situation there so complex and tangled that they stopped trying to follow it a long time ago. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Middle East Conflict will change all that. It's a well-rounded yet succinct primer on everything one needs to know about the military history of the Middle East and all its 22 nations to gain a stronger grasp on present-day developments. It clearly explains how conflicts in the area formed centuries ago and takes the reader through wars, treaties, European and American interventions, terrorist attacks, territorial disputes — all the way up to the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and recurrent Iraqi squabbles with America. A glossary, timeline, who's who, bibliography and a list of present-day political leaders for each nation are also included to help us understand this compelling and troubled land.

Synopsis:

The author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to World War II" presents a comprehensive survey of military and political events in the Middle East, one of the world's most volatile regions.

Synopsis:

Updated with information on the effects of the U.S. presence in Iraq.

There is perhaps no other place in the world fraught with as much turmoil as the Middle East. This updated guide provides readers with an intense look at current events and the ever-changing political and social landscape in this dynamic part of the world, as well as the history¬—ancient and modern¬—of the region.

-Very strong sales for the first two editions

-The go-to book on the subject for readers on all sides of the issue

-This book has a nationwide appeal for anyone wishing to bring themselves up-to-date on the conflict and its consequences for the United States and the rest of the world

-Covers recent events, including the death of Arafat and the Iraqi elections, with expanded information about terrorism in the region
