100 mitos sobre Oriente Proximo / 100 myths about the Middle East (Paperback)

This indispensable and tremendously relevant study takes on 100 of the most popular and misinterpreted “truths” about the Middle East—from the political, cultural, social, and historical spheres—and unravels them without diminishing their inherent complexity. Halliday rigorously analyzes topics as diverse as the Palestinian crisis, the war between Iraq and Iran, U.S. military engagements in the Gulf, the Afghani-Soviet conflict, and other milestones of modern Middle Eastern history to arrive, in a rational and convincing way, at conclusions that will challenge a number of misconceptions and preconceived notions about the region. A glossary of terms that have entered the public lexicon since September 11 is also included.

 

Este estudio imprescindible y completamente relevante selecciona un centenar de entre las más populares y malinterpretadas “verdades” sobre Oriente Próximo—del ámbito político, cultural, social o histórico—y desentraña cada una de ellas sin menoscabo de su complejidad inherente. Halliday analiza con rigor temas tan diversos como la crisis palestina, la guerra entre Irán e Irak, las intervenciones militares en el Golfo encabezadas por EE. UU., el conflicto afgano-soviético y otros hitos de la historia moderna de Oriente Próximo, para llegar, de un modo razonado y convincente, a conclusiones que harán cuestionar un buen número de ideas falsas y preconcebidas sobre la región. Se incluye también un glosario de términos que han entrado al léxico común desde el 11 de septiembre.
