Middle East Politics for the New Millennium : A Constructivist Approach
Middle East Politics for the New Millennium: A Constructivist Approach looks at the politics of one of the world's most dynamic and challenging regions using the insights offered by constructivism. By analyzing the role of ideas and repeated interaction, the authors offer a refreshing long view analysis of the region's politics that differs from the crisis-centric approach which is often utilized. Covering the countries from the Persian Gulf to Turkey, Egypt and across North Africa, as well as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Middle East Politics for the New Millennium will aid students and analysts alike in understanding Middle East politics.
