Publisher's Summary

Fault Lines is by a non-academic former businessman and consultant, widely traveled in the Middle East, for those interested in understanding the often convoluted history of American Middle East policy. The audiobook explains the fault lines that have often plagued US efforts to protect its national interests in the region and how these ongoing faults have led to a precipitous decline in American influence. It also includes some recommendations as to how this decline can be reversed.

Past and current history presented concisely

The author begins with a history of the area from early 20th century, moves along in time and then provides a witness testimony to more recent events. It becomes flagrantly clear that nations other than those within the region have consistently abused the governments and peoples of these nations for their own profit and/or aggrandizement. This background is essential to know if understanding of current politics is to be attained. The perceived aim of the book is not to lay blame, but to provide an understanding essential to moving forward.
Narrator Jack provides an excellent way to learn from what can be a rather dry teaching tool.
I received this book as a gift.
