The Middle East captures the richness and diversity of Middle Eastern culture and places the region in its global context in a way that no other reference has done for this age group. The Middle East dominates global news and politics, and its many historical and sociological complexities are difficult to understand. By examining a wide range of themes, including religion, resources, history, politics, and current affairs, and then embarking on a country-by-country examination, The Middle East is an excellent companion to any discussion of current news or social and political events.show more
