Description - Crescent of Crisis by Philip H. Gordon
The greater Middle East region is beset by a crescent of crises, stretching from Pakistan through Afghanistan, Iran, and Iraq to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Together, with turmoil in Syria and Lebanon, these crises pose the most pressing security challenges faced by the United States and its European allies. This book brings together some of Europe and America's leading scholars and practitioners in an effort to develop a common approach to resolving the five major crises in the region.
