Abstract:

The Middle East is perhaps the most tumultuous area on earth, with ancient battles still being fought. This updated guide offers an intense look - through the lens of present-day knowledge - at current events and the everchanging political and social landscape, as well as the region's history. And it addresses: the re-arming of Hezbollah; Iran's increased threat of acquiring nuclear weapons; the odds of Palestinian unity in peace talks; and, the evacuation from Gaza.
