From the Publisher
"This is no ordinary textbook on the Middle East. It has a story to tell, and does so by evoking images and providing anecdotes that are culturally sensitive and insightful. This book is rich in content. It draws on religion, politics, economics, and geography to provide a comprehensive and balanced analytical perspective. I will definitely use it in my classrooms, and recommend it to anyone interested in the Middle East."

"This is a superbly tailored introductory survey of the contemporary Middle East. It is comprehensive, well written, sufficiently rigorous, and remarkably objective. Students will find its thematic framework a great help as they analyze and compare over sixteen country case studies. Sorenson’s creative approach and impeccable scholarship in this text are sure to set the standards for years to come."

“The book’s topics, approach, historical, political, and cultural perspective is reason enough for adoption in schools. [
] An Introduction to the Modern Middle East is a meaningful introductory exposure to the Middle East and North Africa for students. It should motivate all to want to learn more; what could be a better recommendation for a book?”
