This volume examines local-regional constraints of Middle East conflict and how, through escalation and the involvement of extra-regional powers, such conflicts acquire an international dimension. The theory of a regional subsystem is newly employed as a framework for conceptualizing this interplay between regional and international factors in Tibi's examination of the major Middle East wars in the period 1967-1991. The author also provides an outlook into the future of conflict in the Middle East in the aftermath of the most recent Gulf War. Other books by the author include "Crisis of Modern Islam", "Arab Nationalism, a Critical Enquiry", "Islam and the Cultural Accommodation of Social Change". An additional Part 5 in this edition shows the new pattern of security following the interstate war and looks at the future pattern of conflict following the end of the Cold War.
