Description: This book explores and analyzes the history of conflict in the Middle East from British rule in the early twentieth century to the Iraq war in the twenty-first century. The Arab-Israeli conflict is the main focus of this book but it also examines: Arab nationalism, especially in Egypt and Syria; the Islamic revolution in Iran in 1979; the causes and consequences of three wars involving Iraq; the growth of political Islam and Islamic fundamentalism in the Middle East. Throughout the book, key dates, terms and issues are highlighted, and historical interpretations of key debates are outlined. Summary diagrams are included to consolidate knowledge and understanding of the period, and exam-style questions and tips written by examiners provide the opportunity to develop exam skills.
