Who are the Palestinians, and what do they want? Which terrorist groups are based in the Middle East? Who harbors them? Does Israel have legitimate rights to the land? Are the settlements an obstacle to peace? What was Oslo? Where did the conflict start?

North Korea/South Korea: U.S. Policy at a Time of Crisis (Open Media Books)

North Korea/South Korea: U.S. Policy at a Time of Crisis (Open Media Books) Lowest new price: $7.35
Lowest used price: $2.49
List price: $9.95
Author: John Feffer

The Korean peninsula, divided for more than fifty years, is stuck in a time warp. Millions of troops face one another along the Demilitarized Zone separating communist North Korea and capitalist South Korea. In the early 1990s and again in 2002-2003, the United States and its allies have gone to the brink of war with North Korea. Misinterpretations and misunderstandings are fueling the crisis. "There is no country of comparable significance concerning which so many people are ignorant," American anthropologist Cornelius Osgood said of Korea some time ago. This ignorance may soon have fatal consequences.
North Korea, South Korea is a short, accessible book about the history and political complexites of the Korean peninsula, one that explores practical alternatives to the current US policy: alternatives that build on the remarkable and historic path of reconciliation that North and South embarked on in the 1990s and that point the way to eventual reunification.

Bin Laden, Islam, and America's New War on Terrorism (Open Media Series) Lowest new price: $2.99
Lowest used price: $1.89
List price: $8.95
Author: As'Ad Abukhalil

Lebanese scholar As'ad AbuKhalil examines the roots of the September 11 crisis, the causes for antipathy toward the United States, and the historical relations between the U.S. and the Islamic world. AbuKhalil also reviews the background of U.S. entanglement with the Middle East, and how it catalyzed militant fundamentalist networks that came to perceive the United States as an enemy. Beginning with an introduction on the legacy of Western misconceptions about Islam and Arabs, the book focuses on Islamic fundamentalism and U.S. foreign policy, and the way both polarize the world into a "good and evil" "with us or against us" view. Drawing heavily from Arabic language sources, AbuKhalil discusses the rise of Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda, the Saudi connection, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the regional implications of the American "War On Terrorism."
