Over the centuries, the Middle East has confounded the dreams of conquerors and peacemakers alike. Its huge oil reserves have given it global economic importance, as well as unique strategic value. In this classic work, Peter Mansfield follows the historic struggles of the region over the last two hundred years, from Napoleon's assault on Egypt through the slow decline and fall of the Ottoman Empire to the painful emergence of today's modern nations, the Palestinian question, and Islamic resurgence. For this newly revised edition, Middle East expert Nicolas Pelham has updated the text, examining recent developments, including the turbulent events in Afghanistan, the troubled relationship between the U.S. and Iraq, the continuing Arab-Israeli conflict, and the rise of Islamic Jihad. Second Edition-Revised and Updated. Author Peter Mansfield. Soft Cover.
