Charles Perry was not thrilled about this book. He said it rather
jumps from al-Baghdadi to the 20th century without covering much in
between. And the author didn't seem to understand that the history of
what was in between was also significant.
I always welcome new books, but I would rather see it first before i
buy it, based on his reservations.
