bookshelves: own-or-access, history-politics-economics, arab-world, philosophy-ethics-religion, 2012
Recommended to C. by: Richard Pennell
Read from April 05 to June 25, 2012

The last few chapters of this were as gripping as any thriller. Damn, damn, damn, damn.

I'm starting to get ads from the Australian government in Arabic popping up at the side of web pages. This one says "smoking stays in your future" (a very literal translation).
