Directed by Professor Barry Rubin, the GLORIA Center produces up-to-date, insightful analysis and reporting on modern Middle East affairs, for a variety of audiences. We focus on the key subjects of the day--Israel-Palestinian issues, Iran, Syria, Egypt, and other crucial areas of the region. Through our use of primary sources and collecting information on the ground, we provide accurate analysis in order to influence the state of the region.  Professor Rubin is an acknowledged, veteran and prolific analyst of the politics of the Middle East.  Senior Research Fellow Dr. Jonathan Spyer has visited Syria several times during the course of the civil war, witnessing developments first-hand. GLORIA is one of the most dynamic, versatile and active Mid-East think-tanks in the world today.

Some highlights of GLORIA’s work in 2013 and the coming year:
  • Free Books: 13 full-text books have been made available online, including on the Israel-Palestinian conflict, Syria, U.S. policy, Jewish assimilation, and more.
  • Islamic Political and Social Movements: Edited by Barry Rubin and published by Routledge (2013), this truly ground-breaking and timely work collects for the first time in one reference work the latest scholarship on a previously-neglected aspect of the Muslim political and social experience, and will be invaluable to researchers and students across a wide range of disciplines.
  • Nazis, Islamists and the Making of the Modern Middle East: Forthcoming in February 2014 (Yale University Press) by Barry Rubin and Wolfgang G. Schwanitz, the book focuses on the unique and lasting political alliance forged among Third Reich leaders, Arab nationalists, and Muslim religious authorities during the 1930s and 1940s.
  • Silent Revolution: How the Left Rose to Political Power and Cultural Dominance: Forthcoming in April 2014 (Harper Collins), by Barry Rubin, this thorough history exposes the radicalism that masquerades as liberalism today and charts the movement's unchecked rise to cultural and political power.
  • Middle East Review of International Affairs (MERIA): Our quarterly journal features articles on developments in the region, including U.S. policy, radical movements, minorities, and a recent special issue on Syria.  MERIA is the most widely read journal of its type in the world, with a circulation of over 25,000.
  • Turkish Studies: Turkey is a country whose importance is rapidly growing in international affairs. It is playing an increasingly critical role in Europe, the Middle East, and the Caucasus. Given Turkey’s significance and the great interest in studying its history, politics, and foreign policy, the Turkish Studies quarterly journal presents a forum for scholarly discussion on these topics and more.
