Banner headlines testify to the increased awareness of environmental problems in the Middle East and to the urgency of solving them. Whether the concern is with the dumping of toxic waste in Arab countries, or with the need for Islamic solutions to prevent ecological disaster - Middle Eastern newspapers are raising awareness of environmental issues and of the potential ill effects they can have throughout the region. Written by some of the leading scholars in their own particular fields, the 18 essays in this book bring together subjects as diverse as the Oslo agreement, nuclear weapons in Israel, and Islamic development agendas in sub-Saharan Africa. The book reflects the range of influences that impact on the Middle Eastern environment, rendering a specialized and topical area of thought to a broad reading public.
