    In this masterly work of synthesis, Peter Mansfield draws on his experience as a journalist and historian to form a picture of the political and social history of the meeting point of Occident and Orient over the last two centuries, from Bonaparte's marauding invasion of Egypt to the start of the Gulf War. In two penetrating final chapters, Peter Mansfield discusses Saddam Hussein and the prospects for the future.

    "Boring reader"
    Overall

    I am sorry to report that although I love history and am really interested in the topic, this is among the most boring books I have ever listened to. The book is written without wit or style, and the reader drones on, making the total package almost impossible to listen to. Stay away from this book.
