The Middle East has been one of the most troubled regions in modern history. Terrorism and wars plague not only its nations, but the international community as well. In response, the United States military—as well as other United Nation members—have become deeply involved in the affairs of the Middle East over the past 30 years. 

The new Middle East Almanac contains a detailed, day-by-day chronology of events in the region as well as an A-to-Z biographical dictionary of the key figures involved in the conflicts. A comprehensive listing of vital statistics is included in the appendix along with maps, illustrations, and an extensive bibliography for further research.

Coverage includes:

  • John P. Abizaid
  • Nuri al-Maliki
  • Abdul Rashid Dostum
  • Tommy Franks
  • Robert M. Gates
  • Saddam Hussein
  • Hamid Karzai
  • Ruhollah Khomeini
  • Stanley A. McChrystal
