    schema:reviewBody ""The Middle East dominates world affairs: Iraq, Israel-Palestine and Islamic extremism are issues that affect the planet. It has become the new global battlefield. Pulled between countless political forces - whether it be the US, Europe, Israel, China or Russia - and between countless ideological forces - from Islam through pan-Arabism, opposition to Israel and anti-Americanism, to democracy and liberal capitalism - the Middle East is one of the most complex regions in the world. Here, in over a hundred easily digestible entries, Alain Gresh and Dominique Vidal (two acknowledged world experts on their subject), present the region as it is. A book to refer to as well as to read, The New A-Z of the Middle East belongs on the bookshelves of anyone interested in today's world, and the possibilities of the future."--BOOK JACKET." ;
