Summary
Middle East Patterns continues to be the only comprehensive regional study of the area written by a US geographer since 1960. This revised and updated third edition retains the basic framework of its predecessors, examining the Middle East from a topical and then a regional, country-by-country perspective. A thoughtful consideration of the physical environment lays the groundwork for emphasis on cultural-political and geopolitical patterns, which are the essence of the study. The book includes up-to-date thematic and regional maps, tables, and photographs
