Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In his preface, Rubin (director, Global Research in International Affairs Ctr.; editor, Middle East Review of International Affairs Journal) indicates that this work does not aim to provide a "comprehensive portrayal of the region but to explore some specific, often neglected topics." His approach is effective. The work's straightforward essays include "The Egyptian Media," "Islam and Christianity in the Middle East," and "Popular Music, Popular Culture, and Social Change in Arabic-Speaking Societies," each followed by references and suggestions for further reading. They tackle subjects that are at the best of times complex (e.g., Middle Eastern politics, religion, and history, which must be navigated in the context of Islamic law, secular law, and historic and cultural precedent) and present them with a remarkable clarity that will result in easy comprehension. VERDICT This eye-opening look at a region with a long and complicated history offers objective coverage and is an excellent choice for anyone seeking a greater understanding of this important part of the world.—Christine Sharbrough, Derry P.L., NH
