The Government and Politics of the Middle East and North Africa continues to provide comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of the domestic politics and foreign policies of all countries in this crucial region. An introductory chapter written by Mark Gasiorowski offers a comparative overview of the countries in the Middle East and North Africa to provide readers with preliminary traction in the region's political landscape. Invited specialists contribute authoritative overviews of the government and politics of each country using a common framework to create consistency throughout the book, examining each country's historical background, political environment, political structure and dynamics, and foreign policy. Chapters are augmented by a map of each country, a box providing crucial facts, and an annotated bibliography summarizing the major literature. The seventh edition has been revised throughout to reflect recent substantial changes in each country. In addition, the authors provide vital new considerations of major developments, including events related to the Arab Spring, the US pullout from Iraq, and the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict.
