WWI's aftermath in the Near East
by rowan on March 30, 2009Wonderfully readable but seriously written, Mr. Fromkin's book tells the story of Near East politics after WWI. How the states in the region were created, the Turkish-Greek struggle for Asia Minor, British and French policies and rivalry, the Saudi rise to power in the Arabian peninsula and even famous Lawrence of Arabia rather unknown postwar role in shaping events in this very complex region. Worth reading indeed and hiding some surprising analysis on issues.
