More than half of the world's oil comes from Persian Gulf states. Political instability and religious strife here threaten to interrupt the world's economic routines. Two presentations examine the history of Persia, Iran's attempt to westernize, and the backlash of religiously fervent Moslems against the West and against each other. The World's Political Hot Spots series explains the basis of conflicts in some of the world's most politically sensitive areas. Many of these regions are in today's headlines, and tensions recently have become violent in virtually all of them. Each presentation covers up to 10 centuries of background, revealing how and why today's problems occur.

NOT a Persian Gulf states history!
This is not a short history of Persian gulf states. There is nothing about UAE, Qatar and Bahrain history in this book. This is a short and very selective history of Iran, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
Not at all. Narration is fine but when it comes to quotes, it's totally ridiculous. Actors with weird accents, try to talk like an Arab or Persian king and it's more funny and distracting. As an Iranian I can tell you that often time they have Indian accent instead of Persian or Arabic accent!
He is fine.
Useful basic background piece
