9780738850283: Olinda's Dream

One part of the book covers the highlight history of the Middle East mainly from 1860 to the present time. The text, typed in italics, appears intermittently in the course of the book. It is well referenced. The second part, typed in plain (Roman) text, covers basically the story (semi-biographical) of four generations of my families. The centerpiece of the book is timely because it covers the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the creation of Israel in 1948, the 1967 War, the 1973 War, the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982 and the Intifada. The involvements of the neighboring countries, Britain, France, United States presidents and Nazi Germany in these conflicts are covered. The book could be considered the "Gone with the Wind" of the Middle East. The author's thoughts, ideas, philosophy and experiences, both medical and non-medical, developed in the book could be construed as a follow-up to the thoughts of Kahlil Gibran. The book contains many literary and appealing quotations of famous people fittingly woven into its matrix.
