The New Middle East: Shifting allies, enemies and loyalties

The Jewish Quarterly 245



The Middle East is changing as tensions rise and new rivalries, blocs and partnerships form. What is causing these shifts, and how will they affect the region’s future?

This issue of The Jewish Quarterly examines the dramatic changes unfolding in the Middle East, as the region’s powers form new rivalries, blocs and partnerships. Shifting Sands looks at the evolving role of the United Statesand its rising tensions with Iran, and the causes and the consequences of Israel’s normalisation agreements. In addition, the issue contains an essay by Israeli author Nir Baram that explores how Israeli attitudes to their country’s future have shifted as hopes for a lasting peace fade. Also included is a feature about the Jews of Kaifeng in China, as well as reviews, correspondence and more.
