Format: Paperback
I had to read this book for a class on the British Empire, but it was surprisingly better than I expected. Very comprehensive, it covered aspects of the Ottoman Empire and British/French influence from many points of view, and took into account various motives for actions of parties involved. If at times it was a bit wordy, it didn't leave any questions unanswered for me.

Before I read David Fromkin's account of how it all happened, I knew little about the source of the issues in the Middle East. It was fantastic to get the background. It is an account of human folly. Of pencil pushers deciding the destiny of millions of people without any understanding of the far-reaching consequences of their decisions. For anyone, with an interest in the Middle East..this book is a must-read.

Excellent. Explained most of what puzzled me about artificial division of the Middle East .
A different world of Empites rivalries. Recommended reading.

Great book but this was advertised as 'near new' which was not an accurate description and I was disappointed as a result. Someone had used a pen quite liberally to highlight sections throughout the book.

Should be read by anyone interested in the 'modern' Middle East. As relevant today as when written - should be read by all senior students.
