Kingfisher

The Middle East captures the richness and diversity of Middle Eastern culture and places the region in its global context in a way that no other reference has done for this age group. The Middle East dominates global news and politics, and its many historical and sociological complexities are difficult to understand. By examining a wide range of themes, including religion, resources, history, politics, and current affairs, and then embarking on a country-by-country examination, The Middle East is an excellent companion to any discussion of current news or social and political events.

REVIEWS

Praise for Kingfisher Knowledge: The Middle East

Children's Literature

This survey of the Middle East lives up to the Kingfisher reputation for succinct, thorough information complemented by excellent photography.

School Library Journal
A concise overview of the history and culture of the region, defined as the countries of Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, the Palestinian territories, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, the Gulf states, Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan. The text is brief but informative, and current political controversies are touched on in an age-appropriate and evenhanded manner...This would be a good choice for middle graders or reluctant readers doing research on this subject...
