The message of the book is highly biased and the authors make no effort to hide their fringe left-wing agenda. Be it the selection of facts, the depictions of historic personalities or the overall tone of the story, its _very_ pro-Arab, especially when it comes to the Israeli-Arab conflict, and "anti-imperialist" (the West is always there to blame for everything bad that has ever happened in the Middle East) and pro-socialist elsewhere. Quick summary: everything Israeli/British/French/American = bad and greedy, Arab=good or at least well-intended.
In short, if you are looking for truth - please look elsewhere. The "history" as relayed in this book has never existed except in Arab nationalists' and, well, a few Western professors' minds.
