The New Middle East also looks at pressing issues like the impact of American policy in the Middle East, international relations with Saudi Arabia and Iran, and what role Turkey plays in the mix. A highlight of the book is its view from the inside, especially in matters of human security. What is the impact of millions of displaced persons? What is the role of women in the Middle East? How does poverty impact health care and education? How has war and conflict affected the environment? What does climate change mean concretely for the future of the Middle East?
In the midst of turmoil, forced migration, and refugee crises throughout the Middle East, this book asks pointed questions and offers much needed answers and information. The New Middle East is an absolute MUST READ whether you want to understand current events or explore the intricacies of international relations and the current threats to human security in the Middle East today.
