Ever Wonder How the Middle East Got That Way?

There is an excellent post over at A Berkeley Economist Against Empire (longish but worth it) based on excerpts from a book the blogger is reading, A Peace to End All Peace: The Fall of the Ottoman Empire and the Creation of the Modern Middle East. The post has long quotes, and concentrates on drawing parallels between the events of 1915-1916 and today, as well as exploring some of the roots of present-day conflicts throughout the Middle East. Take a look - it's fascinating.
