Where did writing, culture, and agriculture begin?
How did the belief in a single, all-powerful God sprout and thrive in a world where people worshiped many different gods?
These are just some of the questions you’ll find answers to in History of the Middle East: Melting Pot - Holy Wars & Holy Cities - From the Sumerians to the Ottoman Empire and Today’s Nation States: Israel, Iran, Iraq, and Egypt - Shaping the Near East History.
The Middle East is the cradle of civilization - where humankind once roamed in small groups of hunter-gatherers and foraged for food and shelter, then learned to plant crops and build structures. Today, we are an advanced civilization that has conquered the skies, oceans, and even the moon. To understand how this transformation occurred, take a brief trip back into the history of the Middle East, where it all began.
Go back to the origins of humankind, where two rivers formed the Fertile Crescent and civilization sprouted.
Hear the Abrahamic Religions bud in the Levant along the Eastern Mediterranean Sea and develop into Judaism and Christianity.
Listen as the steady march of empires hold sway over Middle Eastern trade, resources, religion and culture for millennia.
Visit the sacred cities whose connections to holy people and events sparked bitter conflict.

Do not recommend
Narrator was not good. Sounded like a robot reading program. I was very disappointed. This topic is so important for us all to understand. I did like the review questions at the end of each chapter; but they were read through to fast.

Far too short and the reader was horrendous
I rather enjoy the history of the Middle East which is why it is sad that I did not enjoy this book. First off, I love learning about the history of the region but this book doesn't cover nearly enough about anything. It is too brief and the voice was at times so monotonous I found myself falling asleep while trying to listen to one of my favorite subjects. Not a good sign in my opinion. Not only was the reader not very appealing to listen to but was full of pronunciation errors. Sorry to say I wouldn't recommend.

Really poor audio - electronic audio
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Proper reading - not electronic audio
Has Middle Eastern History put you off other books in this genre?
Yes - awful to listen to electronic audio - no intonation
How could the performance have been better?
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
if you are selling audio books - ensure that they are properly audible
