MEDIA REVIEWS
"The volume's strength is its tying together of various events, discussed in essays that are presented in chronological order. . . . In general, this is a fine companion to Spencer C. Tucker's more general Encyclopedia of Middle East Wars (ABC-CLIO, 2010). . . . Appropriate for high school, academic, and public library reference and circulating collections." - Library Journal
"The narrative is longer and more in-depth than those found in most reference works. It is also reasonably objective and unbiased-very important for such a controversial subject." - Choice
