The Middle East is a complex region where religion, culture and politics are deeply intertwined in a powerful relationship. This collection of essays addresses these timely issues by providing both a general analysis of the region and more focused country-by-country examples. Among the many themes, nationalism and Islamism are re-examined to demonstrate their ongoing relevance and relationship to the present-day Arab context and identity. This is followed by a closer look at Islamist movements in Turkey, Iran and Tunisia as well as the fate of the eight remaining monarchies of the Arab world and the conditions of their emergence, consolidation and continuation.
