Illustrated with more than 50 maps and diagrams, it provides a well-researched, well-documented and up-to-date analysis of the geopolitical, economic, environmental, population and security conditions that have resulted to a blend of competition and reluctant collaboration among nation states, complex economic interests, as well as legal, political, and ideological struggle in the region.
