Anyone who keeps up on Middle East politics should know about Barry Rubin, Director of the Global Research for International Affairs (GLORIA) Center, Professor at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel, and editor of the Middle East Review of International Affairs Journal (MERIA). Rubin's books, articles, and mailing list have lent expertise, common sense, and wisdom to the complicated morass that is the Middle East. He has been a contributor to the Middle East Quarterly and many of his useful insights into the field of Middle East studies have been reprinted and referenced at Campus Watch.
Now Rubin has started his own blog: The Rubin Report. Here is the GLORIA Center announcement:
We hope you enjoy getting articles from us and find it useful. We will continue to send out 1-3 articles a week. Many more pieces, which will not be sent out, appear on our http://www.gloria-center.org as does MERIA Journal.
However, since we don't have space for all our writings and also to keep up with the times, I have started a new blog called Rubin Reports at http://rubinreports.blogspot.com/ which contains many additional articles and shorter pieces. You are welcome to visit the blog, subscribe to it, and send out links if you so wish.
Do let me know if you have any questions
Best regards, Barry Rubin, Director,
Rubin's previous work has proven indispensable, and the Rubin Report will doubtless do the same. We recommend it highly.
