“The Arab world is not one force, it is made up of several very different nations spread throughout with very different cultures and states.

“The New Atlas of the Arab World” is an atlas of the many peoples and cultures that make up the Arab world. All encompassing, it looks at the major states and crisis throughout Northern Africa and the Middle East from the lawless states of civil war in Somalia to the longer lasting establishments such as Saudi Arabia. Presented in full color photos that capture both cultural images and pictures of the varied environment throughout the region. A large book sure to educate and captivate with its information.

“The New Atlas of the Arab World” is a strong pick for any cultural atlas collection in community library collections.”—Library Bookwatch
