A History of the Modern Middle East

Read a sample from the new edition.

“This excellent survey has been used in many colleges and universities as a standard text since its first edition…In this particularly turbulent period of history, this book should be of interest not only to students, but also to every citizen who has to make some judgment, one way or another, about the US role in the Middle East.”

International Studies

This core text is the first to provide a much-needed interdisciplinary approach to international studies. Emphasizing the interconnected nature of history, geography, anthropology, economics, and political science, International Studies details the methodologies and subject matter of each discipline then applies these discipline lenses to seven regions: Europe; East Asia and the Pacific; South and Central Asia; Africa; the Middle East; Latin America; and North America.

An online suite of instructors resources, including PowerPoint slides, discussion questions, and sample lesson plans, accompanies the material covered in the book.
