The Middle East: A Beginner's Guide (Beginner's Gu&hellip by Philip Robins
Just what I wanted. Not bang up to date, but provides the context to understand current developments. A few surprising errors that may be more than just typos, but I forgive them in the context of what is overall a pretty masterful survey.
Goodbye to All That (Collectors Library) by Robert Graves
I read this book many years ago. I bought this small hardback as this is a book I would like to last and not yellow. His account of his war experiences is riveting, and while his life before and after was more humdrum, he is an engaging writer, and his account is never less than interesting.
Puccini without Excuses: A Refreshing Reassessment&hellip by William Berger
Loved it, keep dipping into it. This author is a Puccini fan, forgiving any faults and boosting him when necessary. I will get round to reading his Verdi (first) and Wagner (probably somewhat later) books.
