The Cradle and the Crescent

As I was an author on this book, it may seem a little odd to write a “review”. This will be where my comments on the chapters I didn’t directly contribute to will be located.

Due to time constraints, I don’t often get to read  the contributions of other authors as much as I would like until the book actually comes out, so they can be as new to me as anyone. Although this is not strictly true of TCatC, as I wrote the Overview chapter and had to keep abreast of the other authors, I still found things on reading the final book that were of interest or I’d like to comment on when I get a chance.

Note: a resource I found helpful for this book and related material (Lebant, North Africa, East Africa) is the bimonthly publication (Saudi) Aramco World, particularly the seriee of articles by Paul Lunde.
