Summary
Is the idea of the "Middle East" simply a geopolitical construct conceived by the West to serve particular strategic and economic interests-or can we identify geographical, historical, cultural, and political patterns to indicate some sort of internal coherence to this label?

This volume fills the void, offering a diverse set of voices-from political and cultural historians, to social scientists
