"Habeeb's viewpoint is fairly evenhanded and accessible to lay readers. His clear portrayal of the situations and the countries involved will appeal most to those seeking a broader understanding of the Middle East, past and present. It is also suitable for those trying to understand where the region is headed." - Library Journal
