"College-level holdings strong in Middle Eastern history will find this 3-book reference almanac set a fine scholarly addition. The three books allow for breakdowns of themes and in-depth examinations: Primary Sources surveys all the influential documents relating to conflict in the region and are divided into seven thematically arranged chapters to help students locate official documents, resolutions, documents relating to peace, war and state establishment, and more. Almanac discusses events and conflicts since the end of World War 2, exploring the roots of religious conflicts and power sifts in the region and providing articles which survey roots of discord and political interactions. Biographies provides detailed biographical essays on nearly thirty of the most influential figures in the region, including those from 1918 to modern times and covering both their ideas and influences and their impact on the region as a whole. An outstanding reference." --Children's Bookwatch, M
