Product Description

Modern and ancient history are tangled and layered upon each other in the Middle East. Israel and the Palestineans are always in the foreground, but conflict and change in the Middle East stretches beyond these two players.

In this insightful guide, you gain a better understanding of the national ambitions, religious zeal, and historical claims and counterclaims of all sides. In it you get:
  • A primer on the rise and spread of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam
  • The influence of outside powers, from Rome and the Ottomans to Europe and the United States
  • A balanced look at the establishment of Israel and the case for Palestine
  • The roots of Islamic extremism and its impact worldwide
  • A review of the recent revolutions in Lebanon, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, and Syria

Publisher's Description

The Middle East is often a pressure cooker of upheaval and the threat of war. Complex dynamics are at work, both culturally and politically, and understanding conflict in this region starts with understanding both recent and ancient events. Noted history writer, Alan Axelrod, PhD, breaks down the stereotypes and biases and helps readers not only understand what has been happening during the last 100 years, but why it has happened, who was involved, and what might happen in the future. Supplemental maps are also included.
