The story of how this region has responded to the challenge of modernization is presented historically and comparatively, beginning some two centuries ago, and tracing development in the modern states of Egypt, Tunisia, and Turkey, plus the states of the Fertile Crescent--Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. To assure a broad scope for comparability, this volume follows the basic methods, assumptions, and goals of the other books in the series, diverging as the particularities of the region demand. Written under the auspices of the Center of International Studies and the Program in Near Eastern Studies, Princeton University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
