Not only a wonderful work of history but also a superb audio experience, this is an audiobook that listeners won’t be able to switch off. With his deep, rich voice, Alan Sklar movingly describes the histories of Turkey and Iran—and how American interests have shaped their development. Sklar takes listeners on a journey from ancient times right up to the present, skillfully mastering the biographies of history-making figures such as Kemal Ataturk, Reza Shah, and Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. The political history is so thoroughly explored that by the end of the audiobook listeners understand why Iran is now an Islamic republic and Turkey is struggling with fundamentalism. More importantly, listeners comprehend where the United States fits into this Middle Eastern jigsaw puzzle. The perfect narrator delivers a compelling listening experience.
