Britain and the Middle East
In the 9/11 Era
Dr Rosemary Hollis
The latest volume in the Chatham House Papers series co-published with Wiley-Blackwell establishes what was ʻnewʼ about the New Labour approach and policies toward the Middle East and what changed as a result of 9/11 and the ʻwar on terrorʼ. It analyses in detail how the Blair government handled the Iraq crisis, invasion and fallout, including developments in relations with Iran. It also documents Britainʼs ʻnicheʼ role in the Middle East peace process; argues that arms sales, trade and finance bind Britain to the Arab Gulf states; and traces Britainʼs involvement in US and regional security arrangements.
