Hiro presents a desk reference to Middle Eastern culture, geography, politics, history, and religion. There are entries on all three Abrahamic religions, international agreements, tourist destinations, relationships with and through the UN, regional conflict and weapons proliferation, historic persons from the 20th century or later, paramilitary and terrorist groups, social movements like pan-Arabism, and more. Over 1,000 encyclopedic entries are included varying in length. Though a handful of black and white maps appear in the front, the book is almost all text. A comprehensive index takes the place of a table of contents. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
