9780136842002: Politics and Change in the Middle East: Sources of Conflict and Accommodation

This long-time best-seller uses a thematic, rather than country-by-country, approach to the region in an analysis that is at once comprehensive and, at the same time, does not underestimate the intelligence of the college audience. The authors wrote this book because there were no introductory texts taking a holistic perspective on the region. This book employs a multidisciplinary approach (political science, economics, history, anthropology) to explain the current political dynamics of the region.  It avoids a country-by-country approach in favor of a thematic approach that integrates regional experiences into a whole.  Major themes include political development, economic development, international relations, Islam - mainstream and jihadist, colonialism and post-colonialism; and recent political changes, with particular emphasis on the U.S. intervention  in Iraq and the rising interest in democracy regionally.

Product Description:

This introductory survey of the Middle East first explains, in depth, the special role of Islam and presents an historical overview of the region, and then treats modern issues on a thematic basis (not country-by-country).

Review:

“This exceptional text, which is popular amongst instructors and students alike, contains reliable and well-presented information about the Middle East. Its excellent framework will help undergraduates better understand contemporary developments in the region by examining its history and culture, as well as the impact of Islam, colonialism, and globalization.”– Anca Turcu, University of Central Florida
