    1. This is an odd book in many ways Not least because it is a history of the Middle East that is structured around a major character s life Now, you might think that such a life might well be someone who lived in the Middle East No chance, really, when you think about it books written in the West are much likely to focus on someone also from the West, even when discussing the history of the East It s just what we do The life chosen was that of Winston Churchill I m not trying to say that Churchill [...]

    2. Fromkin s thorough and highly exploratory piece on the creation of the modern Middle East is a delight for the armchair historian and academic alike With clear and well developed arguments throughout, a plethora of first hand documentation, and plausible theses, the book moves effectively through its three main tenets and leaves the reader with a better understanding of the situation at the time and in the current political as well as social denouement Fromkin argues three key points worth explo [...]

    3. It took me a little longer than I expected to read this rather fascinating book as it slowed down to a crawl toward the end Most history readers are familiar with the dissection of the Middle East as well as parts of Europe as a result of the infamous Versailles Treaty At the beginning of the war, the Ottoman Empire, caught in the middle of this disruption, was already shaky at best and its own people couldn t decide which side they should take This was a empire that spoke many languages, had ma [...]

    4. This book was recommended in the article A Reporter s Arab Library , N Y Times Book Review, 30 Oct 2005.This is an excellent book, but will strike different people differently People used to reading serious history will find it easy to read the author s conclusions are clearly stated and supporting evidence easily located People used to reading novels will find it hard to read there is a bewildering variety of place names and personalities to keep track of People who derive a sense of satisfacti [...]

    5. This book details the fall of the Ottoman Empire and creation of the modern Middle East The Ottoman Empire, like most empires built upon rapid acquisition by a warrior people the conquests of Genghis Khan and Tamerlane are other examples couldn t effectively manage after 500 years of trying their conquered territory.By the beginning of the twentieth century, the Ottoman Empire was collapsing faster than a cheap deck chair beneath a fat man One of the architects of the new order circa 1908 , the [...]

    6. For those of us seeking to understand the middle east, this is an excellent presentation of how, after WWI, the Brits and French divided the area, created new countries, and set the stage for conflict and disaster Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Iran, Saudi Arabia none of these were on the map in 1914 and all were there in 1922.Of particular interest to me were the chapters devoted to the quite significant role of Winston Churchill Fascinating insights into a remarkable person There were many [...]

    7. An interesting history of the machinations that set the stage for the current Middle East I ve read gripping historical counts, but this is very detailed, and well thought out It traces the usually but not always well intentioned policies, the brilliant but ill informed and culturally ignorant politicians, and the unfortunate historical legacy of the Great Game played by the European powers that led to a division of peoples and power in the remains of the Ottoman Empire during and in the years [...]

    8. We learn in great detail how the Middle East around the time of World War One looked from the point of view of British diplomats and politicians It is fascinating to see how such large decisions were made by a very small group of people, each with their own prejudices, although one can never be sure where the prejudices of the author creep into the narrative But at the end of all this detail, over a rather short period of time, I find it difficult to form a clear picture of what ultimately happe [...]

    9. An excellent, well researched examination of how the European allied powers turned the end of World War I into an opportunity to carve up the Middle East to their liking Primarily focusing on British players such as Churchill, Sykes, and Lawrence, it is nonetheless a book that shows the egos and folly of all sides Despite being a quarter of a century old, it is a worthy read, and has a brief afterword that touches on the Gulf War and 9 11 Fromkin s dry, almost clinical tone actually serves in ma [...]

    10. I can t emphasize enough how this book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand why the Middle East is the way it is today It s long, densely written, and well worth the effort This book was given to me as a present on my 30th birthday, and I have read it three times since.

    11. One of the best books I ve read, Peace is a thorough account of the events and personalities that shaped the Middle East as a result of World War I.Taking Winston Churchill as the principle character, the framework upon which the book is built, Fromkin let s us see how momentous policies are made, often with complete ignorance of the true situation of the people inhabiting the lands that will be subject to the policy.It also reveals how individuals can change the course of history I don t refer [...]

    12. A Peace to End All Peace covers the events leading up to what Fromkin calls the Settlement of 1922, when the political boundaries and institutions that were to predominate in the Middle East for most of the next century took shape The book details the many factors involved, such as the rise of Zionism, the exaggerated sense of importance to the war effort of both Jews and Arabs that predominated in Europe, and the personal ambitions of the many actors on the stage, from Winston Churchill to Sher [...]

    13. A must read for anyone interested in Middle East s fragile security architecture, protracted war involving nearly all states in the region, social and economic crises, and the role of the West Key to understanding that contemporary problems with the Islamic State are in fact merely a symptom, and not a cause or an essence of current situation.

    14. One of the most insightful and depressing books I ve ever read about the Middle East It explains so much about the grim legacy that lives in on going conflicts.

    15. 1967 1973 73 ____________________________ 23 25 31 36 103 158 1 .2 158 159 220 234 It is all bad and I told Balfour so They are making it a breeding place for future war the United States was fighting the governments rather than the peoples of her adversaries 289 290 293 300 323 1 2 422 .

    16. A Peace to End All Peace is a serious work of scholarship in understanding the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, and the foundations of the modern Middle East in the aftermath of World War I It s deeply researched and painstaking in presenting the different views inside the British government It is also somewhat scattered, difficult to read, and feels like it s missing key parts.In 1914, it was obvious to all that the Ottoman Empire was on the ropes Perpetually broke, technologically backwards, wi [...]
