The Middle East is an excellent, comprehensive book that is well-liked by students. It presents theoretical concepts in political science along with country case studies. This is a definite strength, which allows book sections to be assigned for different courses and at different levels.
In the Fourteenth Edition of The Middle East, Ellen Lust brings important new coverage to this comprehensive, balanced, and superbly researched text. In clear prose, Lust and her outstanding contributors explain the many complex changes taking place across the region. New to this edition is a country profile chapter on Sudan by Fareed Hassan. All country chapters now address domestic and regional conflict more explicitly, and all tables, figures, boxes, and maps have been fully updated with the most recent data and information.
Lust’s The Middle East is one of the best introductory texts on the region. It covers a large amount of material, while addressing current issues and historical processes in an unbiased manner, a core strength of the text.
"Lust's The Middle East is an extraordinarily useful text for courses in Middle East Politics. The articles in the volume are very well researched and accessible to students, and as current as can be. I highly recommend it."
