The New Middle East: The World After the Arab Spring
The New Middle East: The World After the Arab Spring
by Paul Danahar
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £25.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately this moving target beat the author but..., 5 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very interesting and lucidly presented book giving background to the various "arab springs" informing on the directly involved countries and supplying much pertinent information on other countries associated with those directly involved in the uprisings. In the main the book is up to date except that the changes involving the removal of (ex) President Morsi in Egypt means that the author's commentary on Egypt which ends shortly after Morsi's appointment, is rendered incomplete; his comments on other involved countries remain valid (up to today -5 Nov 2013!).

I have purchased this selection of unpublished letters to the editor (Daily Telegraph) every year it has been published and they never fail to amuse and entertain - at first reading and at subsequent dips.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and informative, 5 May 2010
A delightful book in terms of content and presentation. Comprehensive and informative on how things were and how wooden boats were built. Interesting from the viewpoint of social studies, craft, and the technology of wooden boatbuilding - and of use and interest to the ship modeller, easy reading (but not puerilely so) and covers a wide range of interest. A most enjoyable and interesting read.
