INSIDE THE MIDDLE EAST | ENTERING A NEW ERA

In this book, acclaimed Middle East expert Avi Melamed takes you on a fascinating, eye-opening journey through the Middle East's geopolitical landscape. As the region enters the new era, individual players and regional alliances are engaged in an epic power struggle. The new era we are entering is fraught with challenges and full of opportunities.

THE MIDDLE EAST IS ENTERING A NEW ERA | IS IT A NEW DAWN? OR IS IT A SETTING SUN?

In the third decade of the twenty-first century, the Middle East is entering a new era.

The era is both defined by, and a result of, a combination of ancient and modern, domestic, regional, and international processes.

Iran and Turkey each strive to position themselves as the regional superpower. In parallel, the people of the region struggle to overcome increasing domestic challenges.

These developments, combined with an escalating struggle over path, identity, and direction, could result in a new model of statehood in the Arab world.

While some countries take the turbulent path toward a possible new state, others are fighting for their sovereignty and survival. All of this is occurring while Western hegemony in the Middle East is coming to an end and the Eastern giants are on the rise.

As the region enters the new era, individual players and regional alliances are engaged in an epic power struggle. Some Arab countries are walking the turbulent path towards a possible new model of statehood. Others are fighting for their sovereignty and survival. All of this, while Western hegemony in the Middle East is coming to an end. And the Eastern giants are on the rise.

In his newest book, acclaimed Middle East Analyst, Avi Melamed, takes you on an eye-opening journey through the geopolitical landscape of the Middle East today, challenges common Western concepts, narratives, and theories, and provides predictions about some of the most central regional issues of the day. This distinct understanding allows you to build a multidimensional picture of the geopolitical reality of the Middle East today and provides an unparalleled foundation for navigating the events of tomorrow. The new era we are entering is fraught with challenges and full of opportunities. Is it a new dawn? Or is it a setting sun?

Using primarily sources from the region, Avi provides a professional, rare insider’s view. He clearly and insightfully contextualizes regional events, skillfully helping the reader build a multidimensional picture of the Middle East today. He also challenges common Western concepts, narratives, and theories. And provides predictions about some of the most central issues of the day.

Fluent in Arabic, Hebrew, and English, Avi has held high-risk governmental positions. His years of field and operational experience, profound knowledge, and exceptional record of foreseeing the evolution and impact of events in the Middle East, have made him a sought-after speaker at global forums and policy-making centers, and an acclaimed commentator at media outlets.

Inside the Middle East: Entering a New Era: An invaluable guide to the power struggles in the Middle East I have long sought a book to explain what I thought was the source of most conflict in the Middle East: the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. I obtained Inside the Middle East Entering A New Era and thought I would find the explanation I was looking for. This book gave me so much more than I expected! Mr. Melamed is not only a skilled writer, but an excellent educator! There are so many layers to the power struggles and conflicts in the Middle East that a casual observer can’t fathom. Mr. Melamed presents an overall picture of a complicated area and then peels back the layers that hide the true motivations of the players in this region. He uses concise historical thumbnails of Middle Eastern countries that give the reader an understanding of how and why they are where they are today without losing the reader in a sea of confusing detail. The index in the back of the book with an alphabetical listing of key individuals, organizations and concepts is incredibly helpful as a reference point as one is reading the book. I give Mr. Melamed great credit for his intimate understanding of the Middle East and his ability to convey his knowledge in an understandable form to his readers.

Inside the Middle East: Entering a New Era: Detailed analysis with a western bias This book details the Geo-political environment and challenges of the Middle East today. The analysis is from a sympathetic western perspective that sees countries allied to the USA as “moderate” despite their dismal human rights records and wars. For example, the houthis in Yemen are portrayed primarily as agents of Iran without explaining who they are and what they really want. Houthi attacks on Saudi Arabia are listed while Saudi Arabian attacks on the Houthis including SA’s launch of the war are glossed over. No background is provided to explain why the houthis took over the capital, (such as the central gov’s war on them), or that the houthis were working with the USA to fight al quada until Obama betrayed them to regain favor with SA. This book is a great intro to the Middle East but be aware of the bias. (A common critique for all books on the region).
