This review is from: The Middle East: 2000 Years of History from the Rise of Christianity to the Present Day (Paperback)
i found this book educational as it covered aspects of the middle easts economy, religion, culture and social aspects, as well as education systems. i would therefore recommend it highly to people interested in these specific areas, perhaps for research purposes. however as a layman interested in general history for the sake of history i was a bit disappointed with the book. the book is divided into two sections - the first being exactly what i wanted, a general introduction to the history of the middle east, however this only lasted for about a quater to a third of the book. after this it got a bit too spacific for a general light reader, and became a bit of a struggle to get through.
it was however very well researched and put together, and most definatly educational!

Mr. K. Lewis says:
I notice that this reviewer seems to have written 9 of his or her reviews on the same day, and that the first few all begin with more or less the same sentiment. The other two are written with, shall we say, a somewhat more relaxed attitude with regard to syntax, grammar and spelling. Notwithstanding my ignorance of the Dutch Language Union, I'm a teensy bit sceptical of their veracity! A review containing the phrase "most definatly educational", is always likely to raise the eyebrows of my credulity.

just an Amazon review, who cares.
Well apart from you.
