Three countries seriously impacted by the uprisings of 2011 - Libya, Egypt, and Bahrain - are profiled in this incredible collection of country studies and U.S. government background data, with over 1500 pages of up-to-date information featuring professional analysis and authoritative information about each nation. Compiled from our three nation-specific "Complete Guide" titles, this collection includes Library of Congress Federal Research Division Country Studies, providing an exceptional review of each nation and its history. Books in the Country Studies series describe and analyze "political, economic, social, and national security systems and institutions, and examin[e] the interrelationships of those systems and the ways they are shaped by cultural factors. The authors seek to provide a basic understanding of the observed society, striving for a dynamic rather than a static portrayal. Particular attention is devoted to the people who make up the society, their origins, dominant beliefs and values."
