This text covers such recent developments as the growth of population, differing rates of industrialization, Egyptian-Israeli peace efforts, and the enormous impact of the ever-changing oil market on economic and political life. In addition, the book examines the rarely analyzed but significant cultural and religious developments that are crucial determinants of political patterns and includes statistics and information enabling Polk to re-evaluate and recast outmoded perceptions.

Review:

A balanced, extremely informative and fair-minded work. It is the depth of Professor Polk's historical and cultural presentation and the breadth of his economic, social, and political analysis that distinguish this volume from the plethora of journalistic commentary on the subject and make it a true 'classic.'--Edwin O. Reischauer, Harvard University William Polk has published exactly that solid, illuminating synthesis we have long lacked, and which those studying and acting in public affairs ought to read first about the Arab world.--Manfred Halpern "Middle East Journal " Reviews of previous editions: "It is the depth of Professor Polk's historical and cultural presentation and the breadth of his economic, social, and political analysis that distinguish this volume from the plethora of journalistic commentary on the subject and make it a true 'classic.'" --Edwin O.
