Revolutionary Year: The Middle East in 1958 by Wm. Roger Louis

In 1958 the Middle East and the Arab World were in historic crises. Lebanon was in civil turmoil. Iraq underwent a revolution. The Arab world seemed to be splitting from the West and re-aligning itself with the communist world. This collection of essays address the issues raised by the events of that year and their consequences.
