"Christopher Catherwood puts the twentieth-century Middle East into its broader historical context - from the ancient empires to the dawn of Islam, from the Crusades to the rise and fall of the Ottoman Empire, and from the creation of Israel to today's so-called "clash of civilizations". He asks key questions: Iraq is at the heart of Middle Eastern history, a place where Jews, Muslims and Christians lived for over a thousand years in harmony. Why is it so different now? What is the place of Jews in the Middle East? Why does Osama bin Laden see 1918, with the fall of the Ottoman Empire, as the tipping point? These issues are clearly explained in a way that reaches behind the rhetoric right to the roots of the present conflict."--BOOK JACKET.
