As Drummond takes her readers through four thousand years of history - from Abraham to the present-gradually the realization builds: It is with strong and deeply held feelings that two peoples today are pitted against each other in agonizing conflict over a piece of real estate no bigger than the state of New Jersey.

Dorothy Drummond wonders with us. She has observed the perplexing paradoxes of the region. She takes her readers through the four thousand years of this land's history; the countless tribes who have lived there, the endless stream of empires that have conquered it. This is a history that continues to frustrate peace negotiations today.

I’m retired from the geography department of Indiana State University. I continue to dabble in topics that interest me, most of which apply both history and geography. In recent years I’ve also planned and facilitated tours of three to four weeks duration, for both teachers and others, to China, Australia, New Zealand, India, Turkey, Chili, Peru, and Namibia.

  • This is a very interesting book, with a lot of "Whaat? I didn't know that!" moments in the reading. It kind of reminds me of the days when my dad used to take me to car races--I'd need a 'program' to know who was in what car. An unusual comparison, I agree, but hopefully , if you read this book--you'll see what I mean. I'm very glad I purchased it.

  • It was published in 2004, meaning it wasn't current. The first part of the book was about "today", since the book's "today" was 9 years ago it didn't have much meaning. I was looking for a book that would explain and show in maps how the middle east had evolved from ancient times to the modern era. For me, this book was dry and uninteresting.

  • Complicated subject matter made easy for dummies like me. Good read.

  • An outstanding survey of the issues surrounding enduring conflicts in the Holy Land.

  • I really appreciate that this book is written in a level headed way and does not focus on blaming one side or another. It focuses on the history and attempts to do so in a non-biased manner.

    Great gift for anyone who is into history and world issues.

    Great for anyone who wants facts without political agenda, from an author who has refused to take one side or the other.

  • Recently, Ms Drummond spoke at our Rotary. She kept everyone's attention. Her depth of information is astounding. Truly an educator. We all can appreciate her works.

  • Great Book and information about the different religions originating out of the Middle East. Loved reading it and have recommended to several friends

  • I read this book when it came out, and I thought it was decent, but it is hard to keep up with contemporary events.

    However, when it first came out, I thought this book was really excellent. When I heard the author was doing a radio interview, I listened to some porn station all day to hear her extrapolate on the book, and then they were talking about her being in movies or something. It was disappointing.

    The book was good, but needs updating.
