A detailed history of the modern Middle East

A History of the Middle East: Fourth EditionA History of the Middle East: Fourth Edition by Peter Mansfield

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was definitely the most comprehensive survey of modern Middle Eastern history that I have seen, making it a good reference. At the same time, there was so much detail that it made it hard for my students to read and obscured some big-picture themes that are important for understanding the region’s history.
