International Relations of the Contemporary Middle East

By Tareq Y. Ismael

Syracuse University Press, 1986, 344 pp.

A broad and general study covering the entire period since World War II. The chapters on American and Soviet policies are more or less standard treatment, but those on the Middle East's relations with China and with the countries of Africa are especially to be commended because these topics are so little known.
