The Middle East from the Iran-Contra Affair to the Intifada

Front Cover
Robert O. Freedman
Syracuse University Press, Jan 1, 1991 - History - 456 pages
This challenging new book examines Middle East developments from three different levels--extraregional forces (the United States, the Soviet Union, and Western Europe); regional politics (intra-Arab relations, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the Iran-Iraq war); and local politics (Jordan, Israel, the Palestinians, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey, and the Sudan). It thus provides readers with a multidimensional view of Middle Eastern politics in an increasingly turbulent period.
