Recommended for: anyone interested in modern and middle east history
Read in May, 1991 — I own a copy, read count: three

I can't emphasize enough how this book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand why the Middle East is the way it is today. It's long, densely written, and well worth the effort. This book was given to me as a present on my 30th birthday, and I have read it three times since.
