The Tragedy of the Middle East
by

Publisher: Smashwords
ISBN/ASIN: 0521806232
Number of pages: 308

Description:
The title was chosen in great sincerity because the theme here is to explain how the region's modern history really is a tragedy. Terrible mistakes were made; the wrong roads were chosen. Bloodthirsty ideology took hold; pragmatism was thrown out the window. And yet alongside all of these disasters was a certainty of correctness and a violent rejection of even considering what had gone wrong.
