The book series Contemporary Archive of the Islamic World offers political and economic reports about the countries of the Islamic world from the mid-1970s until the present-day. Originally published in a yearbook format covering the entire Middle East each year, the present series offers the accumulated contributions per country for all available years. These country surveys were authored by knowledgeable insiders – academics, journalists, politicians, etc. – whose reports are both reliable and accessible. The series is an invaluable resource for researchers and is also suitable for classroom use.
