Cradle & Crucible: History and Faith in the Middle East by Daniel Schorr, David Fromkin, Zahi Hawass, Milton Viorst, Sandra Mackey

Through photographs, maps, and the writings of highly respected authors such as David Fromkin, Zahi Hawass, Sandra Mackey, and Milton Viorst,Cradle & Crucibledetails the historical, political, cultural, and religious forces that have shaped the region and unravels for readers the enigma that is the Middle East. Beginning with the prehistoric civilizations of the fertile crescent and continuing through the conflicts of the 20th and 21st centuries, the first section of the book distills the Middle Easts sweeping, often turbulent history. From the Hittites to Alexander the Great, from the Romans to the Crusaders, from the Ottomans to the Imperialists, the Middle Easts rich tapestry of influences and identities is described with new critical insights. The books second section is devoted to the Middle Easts three great faiths, examining in depth the impact of Muslim, Jewish, and Christian beliefs on history and daily life in the Middle East. Filled with photographs and maps that contribute to a visual understanding of the subject,Cradle & Crucibleis a timely guide to this complex, enormously important area of the world.
