Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Derek Perkins

History • 27.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Derek Perkins’s powerful narration of Oxford historian Eugene Rogan’s sweeping history of the Arab peoples and nations is audio listening at its very best. The pace never slackens, the hours fly by, and the story that unfolds is as dramatic and fraught as any novel. We in the West know little of the history of the Middle East and even less of its long, troubled relations with the European colonial powers. Rogan, writing largely from an Arab point of view, fills in dozens of blanks in today’s headline stories and offers a perspective that is illuminating, and persuasive. Perkins, as always, is a master of articulation, handling with fluency and confidence a challenging text—one more challenging for the eye than for the ear. D.A.W.
