This new edition for 2007 has been thoroughly updated and reorganized to provide vital coverage and analysis of the key issues and headline-making events in this dynamic area of the world.

Renowned for its balanced, informative, and accessible treatment of the complex and controversial affairs that make the Middle East so important and so volatile, The Middle East takes an in-depth approach to trends and events in the region as well as the history of its nations.

Key revisions in the eleventh edition include the following:

New chapter profiles of Turkey and the Palestinian Authority Expanded coverage of Afghanistan and Pakistan Updated information on the Arab-Israeli conflict Perspectives on the role of Islam in politics Analysis of the world's growing demand for oil
