WorldViews MIDDLE EAST is a regional division of WorldViews. Known formerly as Third World Resources, WorldViews endeavors to gather, organize, and publicize information and resource materials that deal with issues of peace and justice in world affairs. Our particular concern is with the emerging nations of Africa, Asia and Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Middle East.

Note: WorldViews continues the work of Third World Resources, a non-profit organization established in 1984.


WorldViews MIDDLE EAST has four components:

Resource Center

Middle East-related materials in the WorldViews Resource Center include books, periodicals, pamphlets, curriculum materials, vertical files of information on Middle East-related nongovernmental organizations, and catalogs and directories of films, videos, audiotapes, compact discs, and educational CD-ROMs.

All WorldViews resources are available to the public by special appointment only.
