The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Middle East
The Politically Incorrect Guides
By Martin Sieff
Narrated by Tom Weiner / 6 hours 34 minutes
Think all the trouble in the Middle East started with the birth of Israel? Guess again. In this informative, iconoclastic book, veteran foreign correspondent Martin Sieff offers a jaw-dropping survey of the history and politics of a region that people know surprisingly little about, even though it's never off the front pages of the newspapers. In The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Middle East, he explains, for example, how the British committed themselves to a Jewish homeland in Palestine because of an exaggerated belief in Zionism, why Arab-Israeli peace is impossible, why democracy and a Marshall Plan for the Middle East would only make things worse, and why Islamic fundamentalism isn't ancient, making it all the more dangerous.
