Abstract

The Arab Spring has boosted both mainstream and radical Islamism, heightened the prospects of a third intifada, and exacerbated regional power rivalry in the Middle East. When adding these dynamics to the stalling Israel-Palestine conflict and ever-tense U.S.-Iran relations, the Middle East faces the prospect of a major implosion or a series of smaller, interconnected ones that could have implications for regional global security, argues Mohammed Ayoob. Magdalena C. Delgado finds this to be an accessible and analytically rich book suitable for general readers looking for an up to date account of the topic.
