Textbooks

  1. Featured Textbook: Islam and Politics

    "This work incisively examines a subject of intense public and policy interest. Ranging widely across issues and regions, Islam and Politics provides an unerring guide to Islamism and the impact of globalization from above and protest from below. The analysis is always illuminating, the writing accessible and balanced." - James Piscatori, Professor of International Relations, Durham University, UK.

    "Highly recommended." -- W. J. Breitbach, California State University (CHOICE, June 2010)

    Routledge Middle East Studies are pleased to announce that we are opening selected chapters of An Atlas of Middle Eastern Affairs to view for free online until the end of May 2014! Simply click on the title below and click the ‘view inside’ button to read!

    The authors are delighted to introduce the second edition of the Atlas of Middle Eastern Affairs, which has been completely updated with many new maps. The volume addresses gaps in the literature with regard to the geography and geopolitics of the region. There is a detailed summary of the geography with an accent on key facets. This is allied to a synopsis of each state, in which all the facts relevant to politics are provided. The major political events of the past few years are then described within the overall geopolitical setting. The text is illustrated by almost 100 maps, the majority specifically produced for the volume.
