Reviews - What do customers think about Time: The Middle East: The History, the Conflict, the Culture, the Faiths?

Half introduction, half propoganda  Dec 4, 2006
This seems, on the fact of it, like a good introduction to the Middle East. To this publication Middle East means Afghanistan and Turkey, not central Asia, nor Sudan, nor Yemen. The book is divided so that every two page spread is a different pictoresque topic. Topics include: Islamism, various nation studies, Christianity and various wars such as the Suez conflict, the birth of Israel and other conflicts.

But this is where the decency ends and the tragedy begins. Every country study has pictures of people and leaders, except Israel whose picture is the security fence. There isnt one picture of an Israeli or a Jew in the entire book. The second page in the book is entitled the "splendor of Islam' and includes a long sycophantic diatribe about the greatness and beauty of Islam. But somehow those other religions that began in the Middle East, such as Zarastrianism, Christianity and Judaism, don't exist, they have no 'splendor' in this book, they are treated to dull uninteresting factual descriptions.

The last page of the book gives an idea to the real political view of the book with a long ode to 'tearing down the wall' in Israel, the book claims this wall is 'symbolic' of the unstable middle east. For a long book that ignores the Sudanese genocide, Africans in the middle east, slavery in Saudi arabia and the Yemenite civil war where hundreds of thousands were gassed by Nasser, and of course the Lebanese civil war where another 100,000 died, it is strange that the 'symbol' of the middle east is a concrete wall. Great propoganda.
