Not an easy read. If this makes me sound dumb, I can deal with that. Many times I had to go back a page or two and start over just to make sure I was following along properly. Regardless, I learned a great deal about the Middle East and I'm grateful for what I was able to absorb. My appreciation for the region, and the people who live there, has been growing as a result.

It is a good book that I might recommend to people that have a basic knowledge over the Middle East region's last 50 years, but lacking deeper knowledge about the general economic movements.
The book stays at a fundamental level, and explain the changes in a sufficiently high level, without being bogged down into details. So, if you want to know more about the general macroeconomic shifts of the region, this book is a good place to start.

Borrowed this book from the library when I first first moved to the ME.
The country-specific analysis provided a good starting point for understanding the Arab spring which started a few months after I got here.
