Since the Second World War, conflicts such as the Iran-Iraq War and the Kuwait Crisis have made the Middle East the main focus of military attention. Conflicts in the Middle East analyzes the nature of conflict in the Middle East, with its racial, ethnic, political, cultural, religious and economic factors.
Giving a much-needed historical overview, the main conflicts are also put in their wider context with a thematic debate of issues such as
* The emergence of radical Islam
* The resolution of conflicts
* Diplomacy and peace-making
* The role of the superpowers.
The new edition brings the book up to date and includes an examination of the effects of 9/11 on the Middle East Process and Bush's war on terrorism. Also included is an extended chronology and an updated bibliography.
"C"onflicts in the Middle East since 1945 is an indispensable introduction to modern Middle Eastern history for undergraduates and the general reader alike.
