The contemporary Middle East has been defined by political crises and conflict. The interplay of internal and external factors have set the region on a path of turmoil and crisis with devastating outcomes for its people. The absence of political accountability and representation, and policies pursued by the United States to keep US-friendly regimes in power have been two key factors that have contributed to the seemingly insoluble Middle East politics.
This book provides a detailed exploration of the forces, internal and external, that have shaped today's Middle East. The book follows a chronological order and provides context to major political milestones.
Topics explored include:
* Imperialism in the Middle East
* The formation of the State of Israel
* The Arab-Israeli wars
* Palestinian politics and the failure of the `peace process'
* The Iranian Revolution and pan-Shi'ism
* Superpowers in the Middle East
* The US-led `War on Terror'
* The Arab uprisings
* The Syrian War and the rise of the `Islamic State'
* US-Iran relations
This study puts recent developments in historical context, and will serve as a core reference tool for students and researchers of Middle Eastern Politics and International Relations.
