The Government and Politics of the Middle East and North Africa
The Government and Politics of the Middle East and North Africa continues to provide comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of the region's critical contemporary events and issues. Invited specialists contribute authoritative overviews of the government and politics of each country in the Middle East and North Africa. As in previous editions, country chapters are systematically organized to address historical background, social and economic conditions, politics, and foreign policy, and each chapter features an updated data table for easy compare and contrast. The sixth edition has been revised throughout to reflect recent substantial changes in the Middle East and includes seventeen new maps and a new introductory chapter on the region. In addition, the authors provide vital new considerations of major developments, including Iran's nuclear policies; political dynamics in postwar Iraq; Israel's post-Sharon politics; the fragmentation of Palestinian representation between Hamas inGaza and Fatah in the West Bank; as well as recent developments in Syria, Turkey, and Lebanon
