There are few more erudite or more understandable writers on the topic of Islam than Princeton historian Bernard Lewis. While not a professional narrator, he is clearly comfortable in the lecture hall or classroom. In addition to the program's brevity, the great thing about listening is being able to hit the rewind button to pause and consider. There's a wealth of information, and listeners will come away with an illuminating understanding of events leading up to 9/11. This should be mandatory listening for anyone who wants a more complete grasp of world events as they stand between the Middle East and the U.S. Crisis is perhaps a much overused word to be sure, but it is never so apt as now.
