About

Overview

Religion, philosophy, and nationalism across the Middle East are often in the news, and often are depicted as uniform despite the varied cultures in the region. This book examines the historical role religion and philosophy have played in different countries in the Middle East and their influences on political and cultural relations today. Important historical and contemporary figures in religious and nationalist movements will also be examined on a per-country basis.
