Hopkins provides a sweeping portrait of the many tragedies that seeded the conflicts that plague the Middle East today. By focusing on the rise and fall of civilizations from the ancient Egyptians and Hittites to the five- hundred-year conflict between the Ottoman and Byzantine Empires, Hopkins sheds light on why this region has played and continues to play a critical role in world affairs, relating the story with eloquence and a sure eye for telling details and juicy morsels of fascinating information.
