Drawing on thirty-five years of reporting in two dozen countries-through wars, revolutions, and uprisings as well as the birth of new democracy movements and a new generation of activists-award-winning journalist and Middle East expert Robin Wright has created a masterpiece of the reporter's art and a work of profound and enduring insight into one of the most confounding areas of the world.

From AudioFile:

Journalist Robin Wright has witnessed and reported on thirty years of Middle East politics and events. Her knowledge and personal contacts are woven into a substantial text that does not translate easily into an audio experience. Narrator Laural Merlington keeps her reading carefully neutral and changes her delivery style to distinguish dialogue from narrative. But Merlington's delivery doesn't quite match Wright's scholarly tone or savvy political analysis. Wright is sending a clear message about the United States' current occupation of Iraq, but Merlington doesn't deliver the message with the same force. Furthermore, the number of countries covered and sources quoted requires access to a map and to the extensive footnotes in order to make sense of the political picture Wright describes.
