Summary:
"Rethinking the Middle East runs counter to the received wisdom in modern Middle East Studies. This discipline has been dominated by what may be termed a culture of victimisation; it views the local populations of the Middle East - Arabs in particular - as the hapless victims of alien encroachment, and blames the region's endemic malaise on Western political and cultural imperialism."
