William Polk has published exactly that solid, illuminating synthesis we have long lacked, and which those studying and acting in public affairs ought to read first about the Arab world.--Manfred Halpern "Middle East Journal "From the Publisher:
This text covers such recent developments as the growth of population, differing rates of industrialization, Egyptian-Israeli peace efforts, and the enormous impact of the ever-changing oil market on economic and political life. In addition, the book examines the rarely analyzed but significant cultural and religious developments that are crucial determinants of political patterns and includes statistics and information enabling Polk to re-evaluate and recast outmoded perceptions.
