War and Geopolitics in the Middle East: Today & Yesterday

There is perhaps no other part of the world as important to international affairs as the Middle East. This book—part of the Yesterday & Today series from Origins: Current Events in Historical Perspective—brings to life the vibrant history of war and geopolitics in the Middle East to help understand the region today.  The chapters explore U.S.-Iraq relations, U.S.-Iran engagements and conflicts, American counterinsurgency doctrine in Iraq, suicide bombing, coalition warfare, ISIS, Central Asia and Afghanistan, the Armenian Genocide, Israel and Jerusalem, and the Hajj, among many other articles and podcasts.  Enjoy!
