Reviews

An Introduction to Middle East Politics is a fountain of carefully selected information and accessible analysis. The politics of the Middle East could be very confusing, even for veteran observers. But Benjamin MacQueen has managed to present a seamless account of the most pressing challenging in the region with just the right dose of historical and cultural background. The discussion of the politics of oil, challenges to democratisation, and the US policy in the region in the aftermath of the Arab Spring is superb. This book is a tour de force and an essential item for any collection on the Middle East. -- Shahram Akbarzadeh
