Middle East

From Ashes of Conflict

By Biplab K. Mazumdar

The argument has been made that in the past there was a simplicity, tranquility, sociability, and spirituality that is now lost. This rose-tinted nostalgia is generally confined to the wealthy who do not understand that the world, and specifically the policies and politics in the Middle East, can not continue as is. The human race has become a problem-solving machine, but it can only solve the problems of the Middle East by changing its ways. What is the Middle East? How did outside forces shape and change the region to make it what it is today? This book is an in-depth look at the history of the Middle East, including the foreign policies and politics that have influenced its people. Topics include: the making of Palestine; Israel after the Second World War; the Arab Spring; and 'Americanism' in the Middle East.
