About the Journal
Bustan: The Middle East Book Review is a journal dedicated to review. Published by Moshe Dayan Center for Middle East and African Studies (MDC) at Tel Aviv University, each issue of Bustan typically includes at least three long-form review essays that review new literature. These essays explore broad themes or issues on a particular topic that go beyond the content of the books under review. The journal also includes ten to fifteen short traditional book reviews, as well as review articles in translation. The journal strives to review works in a range of languages, but the journal’s content is published in English.
