This important new textbook offers a theoretically grounded, systematic examination of the foreign policies of twelve Middle East states. The authors first establish a common analytical framework for studying the individual cases; they also delineate the broader regional and global arenas within which Middle Eastern governments operate. Subsequent chapters assess the foreign policies of the region's key players (Egypt, Iran, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Turkey), two pariah states (Iraq and Libya), and two smaller states (Tunisia and Yemen). Designed for use in both politics and IR courses, the book combines an exceptional range of empirical case-study material with thematic, comparative analysis. A theoretically grounded, systematic analysis of the foreign policies of twelve Middle East states.

This book does need updating. Nevertheless there is no comparable text that combines both a theoretical approach and case studies by internationally respected experts on their countries in such a systematic and effective way
