Book review

The Epicenter of Crisis argues that six contiguous states epitomize the
security challenges of a post-9/11, globalized, world: Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iraq,
Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Characterized by a dramatically transforming Islam,
ethnic conflict, civil war, failed states, and terrorism, this "new Middle
East" is the epicenter of what some call an arc of crisis, stretching from the
Balkans into Southeast Asia. The Epicenter of Crisis examines this geopolitically
dynamic region, analyzing the changing role of Islam in these six critical
countries, the dangers posed by potential failed states, and the evolving terrorist
threat. The contributors, all specialists in Middle East or foreign policy, address
such crucial issues as the relationship between the Saudi royal family and Al
Quaeda, Syria's waning influence over Hizbollah, media coverage of the war in Iraq,
a new U.S. strategy for dealing with Iran, Afghanistan's opium industry, and the
effectiveness of U.S. multi-billion-dollar assistance to Pakistan. The Epicenter of
Crisis challenges readers to reconceptualize the boundaries of the Middle East in a
changed world. ContributorsJohn R. Bradley, Rachel Bronson, Daniel Byman, Derek
