Summary 100 Myths about the Middle East 100 Myths about the Middle East Read & download À 100 Much ink has been spilled in recent years about the Middle East At the same time no other region has been as misunderstood nor framed in so many clich├ęs and mistakenly held beliefs In this much needed and enlightening book Fred Halliday debunks one hundred of the most commonly misconst. The author of this book published in 2005 has clearly has it up to here with gross over generalisations about politics culture and religion within the Middle East As such the tone of the book is determinedly pragmatic To the point indeed of noting at one point that It would be reasonable to assume that this is a conclusion with which no one in the region be they Jew Arab or Kurd would concur This is in particular reference to a comment that Jerusalem has become an overblown chauvinistic fetish and the object of arbitrarily intransigent nationalist demands on both sides Probably the main message of the book is that the way religion is used by regimes both in the Middle East in Europe and the US reflects a careful assemblage of historic elements and traditions for political ends There is definitely no inevitable clash of civilisations rather a much complicated and heterogeneous history of co operation trade occupation and conflict This book doesn t attempt a huge depth of analysis as the response to each of the 100 myths is kept to a few pages or less It does however signpost the reader to further references Since my knowledge of Middle Eastern history is patchy verging on non existent this book was helpful and informativeI gave 100 Myths About the Middle East three stars rather than four as the 100 myth structure does lead to a bit of incoherence I would perhaps have preferred a narrative of longer chapters On the other hand the book reads as though written in response to a constant and tiresome barrage of misleading and oversimplified messages in politics and the media so I can understand why it was structured in this way It s also notable that it was written before the so called Arab Spring I d be interested to read Halliday s thoughts on that
