Maps Of The Middle East - The Definitive Source

Concise facts, statistics, and maps are essential for a coherent understanding of current events in the Middle East. Unfortunately, they can be hard to find amid the overwhelming number of sites available.

To address this, The Knowers Ark Educational Foundation has researched and published an impartial and rigorously footnoted information poster / map of the region.

At the same time, we have published an on-line resource site including information from the poster as well as an extensive but carefully selected links list to other on-line resources.

The poster is a great educational tool for teachers, researchers, history buffs, peace activists, and will even work by itself on the walls of libraries, classrooms, lunchrooms, staff rooms, and even washrooms (don't forget those precious educational moments!)

Colourful and attractive, readers will quickly gain an in-depth understanding about regional issues with this poster.

Both the poster and the Website include information on topics such as:

25 Country Profiles - (flags, geography, population, government, judiciary, colonisation, economics, GDP distribution, trade, demographics, government spending, human development (life expectancy, literacy, poverty, access to safe water, stunting, etc) and more...
