The Great War for Civilisation: The Conquest of the Middle East 2★
by Robert Fisk
This book could have been very interesting if it was reduced to one third of its size. At more than 1000 pages it becomes very boring to read through. My advice? don’t bother with this one, or just skim through the most important chapters.
As an information source it shows how the west has f**ked up the situation in the middle east, and in part the mess of the world we live in is also our own fault. But all it tells us could be written in a non-mammoth way. It took me almost one year to make this go into the club37 shelve. My rating is just 2★ because of the size. Otherwise it could have been a 3 or 4 star book.
