"A comprehensive and fresh review of relatively recent political events in the Middle East."--Jerrold D. Green, director, Greater Middle East Studies Center at Rand
These essays analyze the impact of the Middle East peace process since 1993 on the countries most affected by it--Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Jordan, Egypt, and Syria--and on the domestic politics and foreign policies of Turkey and the countries of the Persian Gulf and North Africa. The contributors, all international experts in their fields, also examine policies of the United States and Russia both as they affect the peace process and as the two countries pursue other interests in the Middle East.
