The Middle East is often a pressure cooker of upheaval and the threat of war. Complex dynamics are at work, both culturally and politically, and understanding conflict in this region starts with understanding both recent and ancient events. Noted history writer, Alan Axelrod, PhD, breaks down the stereotypes and biases and helps readers not only understand what has been happening during the last 100 years, but why it has happened, who was involved, and what might happen in the future. Supplemental maps are also included.
