Obviously a very extensive and difficult topic to cover, I thought that the organization of the book made this book not only easy to read, but also incredibly informative. After reading the book, I felt that I had a good understanding of the history of the Middle East, the problems that have been overcome, and the issues still to be resolved. Would highly recommend.

Excellent addition to any library. This book covers the Middle East quickly but effectively. It is written chronologically, but mainly covers the Middle East after the rise of Islam, only devoting 9 pages to pre-Islam. It does cover these areas effectively. It moves on to describe the history of the Middle East from the rise of Islam to modern times. This is an excellent reference book that gives a Bibliography page after every chapter, which there are 50 of. This will allow you to know the sources, as well as look at the sources they used for something specific, which is a great help, especially for a college research paper, etc. Overall this is a well-documented historical work, that is easy to read and gain an understanding of the Middle East.

Book served its required purpose in my class. It showed up to my residence a little dirty but I wasn't one to complain as the text was completely usable
