The eighth edition of Arthur Goldschmidt's widely acclaimed text has been extensively revised to reflect the latest scholarship and the most recent events in the Middle East. As an introduction to the history of this turbulent region from the beginnings of Islam to the present day, the book is distinguished by its clear style, broad scope and balanced treatment. Written for undergraduate students, the text assumes no prior knowledge of Middle Eastern history. The book focuses on the the evolution of Islamic institutions and culture, the infludnce of the West, the modernization efforts of Middle Eastern governments, the struggle of various peoples for political independence, the course of the Arab-Israeli conflict, the reassertion of Islamic values and power, the aftermath of the Gulf War, and issues surrounding the Palestinian Question, The eighth edition brings new discussion to the post-9/11 political developments and surveys terrorism in the Middle East, the Iraq War and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
