About this book

Both Africa and the Middle East have sought alternatives to Western models of development. The last 25 years have seen political independence for the states of Africa and increased economic dependence on external aid. The Middle East, resource rich and water poor, continues economically robust but politically unstable. In both regions, widespread poverty continues as does the involvement of the West. Clearly illustrated with basic maps of the countries discussed, "The Changing Geography of Africa and the Middle East" presents a systematic review of 25 years of development - a guide to the physical, economic, social and political environments of contemporary Africa and the Middle East. This book should be of interest to introductory students in geography and development studies.
