Description

The Chaos in the Middle East: 2014-2016 provides an up-to-date overview of the problems currently affecting the Middle East, and sets them in context. By providing not only an account of the bewilderingly complicated events of the past two years, but also explaining their background, Neville Teller gives readers the tools to understand issues of concern to the whole world. Written in attractive and easily understood terms. the book is ideal for readers interested in comprehending the complex problems emanating from the Middle East.The grim reality in today's Middle East began attracting the world's attention from the beginning of 2014. The growth in size and influence of the bloodthirsty and inhumane Islamic State, or "Daesh", and the hordes of terrified refugees fleeing from the conflict, to name but two examples, forced themselves on public opinion. From this time, major themes dominated the politics of the Middle East, such as the failure to defeat Islamic State in Iraq or Syria, the rise in the power and influence of Iran, the continuing devastation of Syria and the surprising incursion of Russia into the Middle East. These, as well as assessments of particular areas of conflict or special interest such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the Israeli-Palestinian dispute, Turkey and the Kurds, Yemen, Tunisia, Libya, Lebanon and South Sudan, form the framework of this book.
