Summary "Why is there so much conflict in the Middle East? Since World War II, conflicts such as the Iran-Iraq War and the Kuwait Crisis have made the Middle East the main focus of military attention. Conflicts in the Middle East since 1945 analyzes the nature of conflict in the Middle East, with its racial, ethnic, political, cultural, religious, and economic factors." "Giving a historical overview, the main conflicts are also put in their wider context with a thematic debate of issues such as: the emergence of radical Islam, the resolution of conflicts, diplomacy and peace-making, and the role of superpowers." "With further reading suggestions and chronologies of the main episodes of conflicts, Conflicts in the Middle East since 1945 is an introduction to modern Middle Eastern history for undergraduates and the general reader alike."--Jacket
