The book was received as advertised, and I am happy with it's condition. I am also very pleased at the timely manner in which I received the book. I am very satisfied.
Very recent guide to the history and politics of the Middle East. Though the title "Middle East" is a little misleading. Here, it also encompasses the countries of North Africa. The common theme is a predominent Muslim/Arabic tint. Each country gets a brief synopsis of what is usually millenia of history. Enough, hopefully, to entice you to pursue further reading. Special attention is given to Iraq. The sections on it were written in May 2004 and are probably as recent as you will find in book form, given the delays inherent in publishing. The analysis of the US invasion is sanguine. Some positive points, like the overthrow of a brutal dictatorship. Offset by what the author calls an "unremitting" struggle against guerrillas.
