Editorial Reviews

Review

'This textbook provides a clearly written, concise introduction to the modern Middle East. Short, easy-to-digest pieces are augmented by textbooks and maps, exploring all aspects of the region from politics and government, to history, geography, and various cultural perspectives. While perhaps too advanced for some high school students, this book would find a home in Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate classes or libraries meant to support them, and is also suitable for many university level survey courses on the Middle East.' – Middle East Outreach Council, Honorable Mention, Fall 2009

Format: Paperback
It is now (2015) a dated book as well as being full of grammatical errors and difficult to read. There are many better books on this topic.

A very informational text that combined information on Islam with information on the region ethnically, geographically and politically.

Format: Paperback
While this book gives a decent overview (albeit dated and incredibly biased) of geography, history, religion, culture, politics, and current affairs in the Middle East and North Africa, the plethora of grammatical errors and poorly constructed text makes comprehension quite difficult.
