Overview

The perceptions and attitudes that exist today between the East and the West had their origins in former times and earlier civilizations but have been exacerbated by modern day acts of aggression and subjugation. This seemingly unending conflict is now wreaking havoc on a good part of the western world, changing lifestyles and decimating economies. We are engaged in a war against terror without clearly understanding the enemy we face or the inspiration behind the zeal that drives him to bring harm to us-at any cost. Middle East Realities reviews the histories of key players in the Middle East, recounts the genesis of today's conflict and deals with some of the myths and realities revolving around hotly contested issues, including radicalism no longer contained within the confines of the original dispute. This brief and easy-to-read book aims to leave the reader with an improved appreciation of this debilitating issue which is growing increasingly intrusive and costly.
