Understanding the Contemporary Middle East, Paperback / softback Book

Understanding the Contemporary Middle East Paperback / softback

Edited by Jillian Schwedler


The fourth edition of Understanding the Contemporary Middle East has been fully revised and updated throughout to reflect the still-unfolding impact of the Arab Spring, the changing international environment, the impasse in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and much more.

The book also includes an entirely new chapter on the role of women in the Middle East.

Maps, photographs, and details of basic political data enhance the text, widely acknowledged as the best available introduction to the region.
