Middle East Contemporary Survey: Vol. II, 1977-78
Edited by Colin Legum and Haim Shaked
Holmes & Meier, 1979, 824 pp.
For those who know it, and can afford it, this annual has become a rich source of information on the contemporary Middle East. But even with its great bulk, constraints of space mean that some subjects receive but minimum coverage (e.g., five pages on Soviet policy in the region).
