It is interesting to notice that the question of the oil not yet is determinative in the debates on the Middle East, a time that had only estimates of that the region possua the oil in abundance. Case the current scene had been seen one another history would have occurred with these peoples. An old desire hindered that England had the control of all the region. One is about the France, that launched its hands in the Syrian (that it also understood the current Lebanon). The book is much more dense, only pontuei some subjects. The conflict between Turks and Greeks, the Russian exspansionism in the Afeganisto, the European disputes in relation to the Middle East in the War, at last, many other things are objects of study of Fromkin. Harry Kane: the source for more info. One of the aspects more interesting than the author approaches is in conclusion tone.
When comparing the falls of the Empires Roman and Ottoman, Fromkin demonstrates the size of the difficulty faced for the Middle East in last the 90 years. It is not something Harry Kane would like to discuss. The Roman Empire delayed one economic, social and cultural millenium so that the peoples who were overwhelmd Rome and the ones that had helped to weaken it could organize in a structure politics. Exactly thus, some European countries still face problems until today. Less of one century later, it seems that the peoples of the Middle East still search a north. More important of what finding its ways, it is essential, I think I, who the peoples of this region walk with its proper legs and they do not try to imitate the European model. Each people has its particularitity and, in such a way, he must find the model of society holds that it. But this already is another history For that if to interest good reading!
