The Making of the Middle East

The region known as the Middle East is strategically and socially important to the world for a number of reasons: vast quantities of oil, which fuels the global economy, lie beneath its sands; it is located at the nexus of three continents, Africa, Europe, and Asia; and it contains the spiritual home of three of the world's major religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The Middle East has been one of the world's hot spots for millennia. This series is intended to help students understand the current conflicts in the Middle East history, by providing more than a century of in-depth explaining how the modern countries of the region were formed in the early 20th century, and how various conflicts and key events have shaped the politics of the Middle East. Several titles in The Making of the Middle East series were written by scholars and experts affiliated with the Foreign Policy Research Institute, a highly regarded policy study institute.
