This book changed my life.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Great War for Civilisation: The Conquest of the Middle East (Paperback)
I read this book a couple of years ago having decided to read it after listening to Robert Fisk on Desert Island Disks. It occured to me that I was approching 40 and had no understanding what so ever of the history or politics or wars of the Middle East and frankly up till then I had no interest in the subject. However I decided it was time to find out and so read this book. I have never looked back and it set me on a journey that as a nearly 40 year old housewife with a husband and 3 children I never dreamed that I'd take. I have now studied certain areas of this book in much greater detail in other texts and have travelled to the Middle East and actively take part in peace initiatives. I know my title sounds melodramatic but it happens to be true.

Totally changed the way I think about everyday things as well as world news.
I do worry about Fisk's safety though, but am immensely grateful to him for cutting through the crap that we read in the Western press.

Exact same effect upon me, couldn't agree with you anymore.
