The Middle East in the Global Era

After nearly a year of waiting for full editing and reviews from scholars and professors who endorsed her work, Senior Fellow of Middle East & International Studies Sallama Shaker celebrates the publication of a new textbook this year.

Co-edited by Steven Childs, an associate professor of political science at CSU San Bernardino, The Middle East in the Global Era features scholarly perspectives on topics related to the Middle East and North Africa. The book engages numerous aspects, including culture, economics, history, gender issues, international relations, and politics. Each section encourages scholars to analyze and think critically about such issues as peace, stability, development in the region.

Shaker is not only proud to have the textbook widely available, but also pleased to share about the process itself, which enabled her to involve many of her students in its production.

“This has been a team project of many CGU doctoral students, which makes all of us proud,” she said recently about the book.  “Out of the 17 chapters, CGU graduates contributed to 13 of them, each receiving excellent reviews.” (Cognella) Purchase this book on the Cognella website.
