    Based on four years of intensive primary document research, Lawrence in Arabiadefinitively overturns received wisdom on how the modern Middle East was formed. Sweeping in its action, keen in its portraiture, acid in its condemnation of the destruction wrought by European colonial plots, this is a book that brilliantly captures the way in which the folly of the past creates the anguish of the present.

    The Plague is considered an existentialist classic, despite Camus' objection to the label. The narrative tone is similar to Kafka's, especially in The Trial, whose individual sentences potentially have multiple meanings, the material often pointedly resonating as stark allegory of phenomenal consciousness, and the human condition.

    In 2011 a series of antigovernment uprisings shook the Middle East and North Africa in what would become known as the Arab Spring. Few could predict that these convulsions, initially hailed in the West as a triumph of democracy, would give way to brutal civil war, the terrors of the Islamic State, and a global refugee crisis. But, as New York Times best-selling author Scott Anderson shows, the seeds of catastrophe had been sown long before. In this gripping account, Anderson examines the myriad complex causes of the region's profound unraveling.

    It’s hard enough being barely above average when your brothers include the deadliest swordsman of the realm, a saint, prodigies - and the greatest hero of the Middle Ages. But what if you haven’t seen your queen of love in years and she's imprisoned by a one-armed religious zealot and lethal librarians? Even worse, your only allies are vicious killers with rather bad manners and outsized appetites who all want to murder your heroic brother.
