The Unmaking of the Middle East

Jeremy Salt

University of California Press

This chapter examines the origin of civilization in the Middle East and the establishment of Islam's so-called bloody border, and shows the untruth of this latter phrase. Such as term suggests that in the give and take between Islam and the West, borders have swayed back and forth over centuries depending on diplomatic prowess and military strength.

Keywords:   civilization, Middle East, Islam's bloody border, West, diplomatic prowess, military strength
