it was amazing
Read in January, 2002

I read this book in college and remember that it was very hard to put down. Hopkirk portrays history clearly and makes it interesting to read. It really is like a game for control over different countries and territories. I tried to find this book in my libraries, but it is not part of the collection. If I ever come across it again, I would like to reread it. It gives an understanding of different cultures and the paths they have taken to get where they are today. It also helps to understand some of the problems that have gone on and are still going on in the Middle East.
