The Middle East in Modern World HistoryThe Middle East in Modern World History by Ernest Tucker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the best textbook on the Middle East that I have seen so far. It recounts the important events but also touches on a lot of the important themes that can get lost in a “just the facts, ma’am” approach. It’s a bit dry, but still quite good. Even the brief early chapters on the Middle East before roughly 1700 have a good amount of detail.
