    Like no book before it, Preachers of Hate uncovers an ancient hatred that threatens the life and livelihood of every American. The "new" anti-Semitism targets not only Jews, but Americans specifically and the West in general. It targets our values, our lifestyle, and our freedoms. It is the single most important issue we face when trying to make sense of the Arab world.

    Overall

    I read this book BEFORE I seen Michael Moore's Farenheit 9/11, looks as if he did prior to making the film. This book makes an important contribution to western audiences ability to understand islam in the modern world, and the role of the House of Saud in spreading international terror. Some reviewers mistakenly feel that it is a polemic against islam; it is not, but it is an accurate description of a toxic vein that runs through the religion. I am very glad I don't have to live with the same level of threat that the Israelis do. After the cold war, elements within Islam seem to have put themselves on a collison course with other world views. We need to know about this.

  • The Basque History of the World

    Inhabiting the small corner where France meets Spain, the Basque speak their own language, Euskera. Evidence of their culture showed up as early as 218 BC, and now, with a population of 2.4 million, their influence on our world has been all-pervasive. In this "delectable portrait of an uncanny, indomitable nation," listeners will be enthralled as Kurlansky delves into the roots of an intriguing population, and shows us why they continue.

    Perry says: "An eye opener that will break your heart"
    "Fascinating"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was very informative and an entertaining listen; whilst not caring for the recipes they were few. previously I was completely ignorant concerning Basque history and culture; which is probably the case for most Europeans. One of the oldest surving European cultures, but very much alive. I very much liked the telling of so much world history from another perspective. I am inspired to visit the region now.
