The Contemporary Middle East: A Documentary History
John Felton

Modeled after CQ Press’s popular documentary histories, this primary-source rich volume offers researchers an invaluable look into the key events that have shaped this dynamic region since World War I. Organized into thematic chapters, and loaded with both full-text and excerpted primary source documents, The Contemporary Middle East is designed to be an accessible support for courses in Middle Eastern history, international affairs, and comparative politics. Researchers in high school and undergraduate libraries will want this resource handy.

"A necessary reference companion for works like Understanding the Contemporary Middle East (3rd ed., 2008), ed. By D.J. Gerner and J. Schwedler; and Politics and Change in the Middle East; Sources of Conflict and Accomodation (8th ed., 2007), by Roy Andersen, R.F. Seibert, and J.G. Wagner. By providing the acutal documents discussed in these works, it serves as a great reference source for history students and researchers.... Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers." - Choice

"This volume is a good contribution to the history and understanding of the current Middle East." - American Reference Books Annual

"...promises to remain relevant for some time to come." - School Library Journal
