Unlike other volumes in this series, this volume focuses not only on the organizations, but also on the key countries and figures of the region. Includes: o An explanatory introduction o List of Acronyms o Chronology o Bibliography

MEDIA REVIEWS
Recommended for all reference collections. * CHOICE *
Clements's descriptions are informative and objective...an excellent source for information on various Arab movements, organizations, and countries. * Jewish Herald-Voice *
Accessible, up-to-date, and highly readable, this dictionary provides much-needed coverage in the neglected area of international and regional Arab and Islamic organizations, whether regional or international. Both specialists and nonspecialists alike will find this dictionary valuable for years to come; recommended for public and academic libraries. * Library Journal *
Clements (College of St. Mark and St. John, Plymouth, England) has been writing about Islam and the Middle East since the 1970s, and here provides a reference to organizations. In addition to the organizations themselves, he included entries on their leaders, whether kings or emirs, politicians, ideologues, or activists; and on underlying forces generating deeper unity. A chronology, introduction, and bibliography...support the dictionary. * Reference and Research Book News *
