Beset by centuries of conflict, the countries of the Middle East are no strangers to friction. While much about their future remains uncertain, their individual pasts boast the robust traditions and textured stories frequently eclipsed by recent headlines. This thorough series invites readers to journey to bygone eras and behold the development of rich and complex societies whose remarkable cultural monuments, from the medieval `Ab̢ssid Palace of Baghdad to the ultramodern Burj Khalifa in Dubai, witnessed the Middle East's greatest struggles, and anticipate a future resplendent with possibility.
