This book gives students a basic understanding of the Middle East, its history, geography, economics, and the challenges it faces. In addition, this primer shows how the region's history continues to resonate and why America would want to fight two wars in the region in 1991 and again in 2003. After reading this book, students will understand where the Middle East fits into the modern world and how important the region is to world stability and prosperity.
Joseph D. Wilcox is president of Wilcox Communications and a former assistant program director at The American Forum for Global Education.
