A book I ordered arrived today. I'm trying to understand a part of the world I know very little about.
Sad coincidence that I come home to news reports that it's likely going to turn into a potential shitshow.
@rfquerin Iranians aren't Arabs, but Iraq is bound to get used as a battleground if this madness goes any further, poor them...
@Matter see why I need the book?:-) You're correct.The book is supposed to be good and covers the modern history of the Middle East as well so hopefully it will help me.
@rfquerin If it interests you, also read "The Silk Roads: A New History of the World" by Peter Frankopan
