The Middle East

The Middle East

by Lauri S. Friedman

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 6-9 This series entry contains 15 articles on the causes of conflict in the Middle East, what might bring peace, and the role the United States should play. The articles were all written within the last four years and represent a variety of political views, including George W. Bush's January 2006 State of the Union address and testimony from Donald Rumsfeld and General Peter Pace at a 2006 Senate Armed Services Committee hearing. Each selection is preceded by a short introduction and questions to consider and concludes with questions to help evaluate the author's arguments. The text is illustrated by full-color photographs, maps and graphs, as well as relevant political cartoons. The book concludes with several lists of facts about the Middle East and terrorist organizations. It is necessarily limited in scope, and would work best as an introduction to the topic, particularly for reluctant researchers.-Kathleen E. Gruver, Burlington County Library, Westampton, NJ
