Mark Bramhall’s voice has a remarkable calm strength and evenness throughout his excellent reading of this in-depth, clear-eyed examination of the Middle East. The book is three intertwined histories: a concise look at the nations and historic events of the Middle East from 1948 to 1978; a fascinating overview of the ancient peoples who wrote and lived the stories in the Bible, Torah, and Koran; and, of course, an hour-by-hour account of the impassioned arguments and debates that took place at the 1978 Camp David Peace Accord between Israel and Egypt, which was brokered by President Jimmy Carter. Bramhall’s delivery reflects how serious a task it was to bring three very different leaders and personalities together to talk peace for 13 short days in September 1978. Essential listening. B.P.
