Most area specialists recognize the effects of national identity on the regional politics of the Middle East. However, those same specialists have proceeded as if identity matters little for understanding how nations determine their foreign policy in this volatile region.

Shibley Telhami and Michael Barnett, together with experts on Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, and Syria, explore how the formation and transformation of national and state identities affect the foreign policy behavior of Middle Eastern states. The contributors to this volume support theory with concrete narratives focusing on actual policy.

The boundaries of group loyalty and membership in the Middle East have fluctuated greatly over the past century, and will continue to do so. Identity and Foreign Policy in the Middle East offers convincing evidence that the international policies of this area can be fully comprehended only if the power and scope of identity politics are taken into account.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"By addressing the question of the role of identity in foreign policy-making, this volume places itself at the heart of one of the great IR debates at the moment, and this is by no means incidental."

-- Morton Valbjorn * Corporation and Conflict: Journal of the Nordic International Studies Association *
