Pressestimmen

"Wonderful...No book published in recent years has more lasting relevance to our understanding of the Middle East."—Jack Miles, Los Angeles Book Review

"Extraordinarily ambitious, provocative and vividly written...Fromkin unfolds a gripping tale of diplomatic double-dealing, military incompetence and political upheaval."—Reid Beddow, Washington Post Book World

"Ambitious and splendid...An epic tale of ruin and disillusion...of great men, their large deeds and even larger follies."—Fouad Ajami, The Wall Street Journal

"[It] achieves an ideal of historical writing: its absorbing narrative not only recounts past events but offers a useful way to think about them....The book demands close attention and repays it. Much of the information here was not available until recent decades, and almost every page brings us news about a past that troubles the present."—Naomi Bliven, The New Yorker

"One of the first books to take an effective panoramic view of what was happening, not only in Egypt, Palestine, Turkey, and the Arab regions of Asia but also in Afghanistan and central Asia....Readers will come away from A Peace to End All Peace not only enlightened but challenged—challenged in a way that is brought home by the irony of the title."—The New York Times Book Review

It's been quite a while since I read a book straight-through, from start to finish, w/o putting it down. Took about three days. Wow. What was the last one like that? "Three Musketeers" perhaps <g>.
I can't evaluate it from the historical science point of view--I'm not smart enough. Perhaps the reviewer below ("colonialism...") is right about some facts being incorrect. But I have to say that my understanding of the Middle East has changed *completely* (it would probably be better to say that I gained an understanding vs. a disconnected mish-mash of opinions, newspaper reports, and facts that that I somehow "knew", but couldn't tell how if my life depended on it.)
I have a custom of ruining books I read by highlighting, dog-ear'ing, writing on pages, and inserting lots of post-its everywhere. So, this time I've used a pack of highlighters on this book! (This method did fail sometimes, 'cause some pages I ended up "painting over" completely. There's absolutely no fluff in there.) The book contains such a huge amount of information--factual of course, but also a lot of analysis, that I *know* I will have to read it again, and probably more than once--at least in order to let the timeline set in. On the first reading I really felt overwhelmed, and I'll let it settle for a while (though I did go back selectively.) Btw, Fromkin's writing style is outstanding, especially for a book that's bound to be difficult because of sheer information volume. It's actually easy to read.
Another good thing is is an insert with a great selection of photos and maps. There's something visual about nearly every personnage talked about wich makes the description come alive in many cases.

Von Ein Kunde am 1. September 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
For me, this was a hard book to read without context. When I first grabbed it 7 years ago, I put it down after 50 pages. When I picked it up last month after having read more on the history of the region, I could not put it down. For anyone with an interest in Middle Eastern History, the book is fascinating and has some truly "truth is stranger than fiction" nuggets. The events surrounding Turkey's entry into the first world war, the story (myth) of T.E. Laurance, and the Dardenelles fiasco all translate into great stories and when viewed in detail serve to reiterate the idea that history is a chain of blunders rather than any kind of coherent conspiracy.
The author's clear anti-British bias, not undeserved mind you, does detract a little but only because such tales stand best on their own without sarcasm. One thing that was missing, which I like to see in a book like this, is a better indication of the author's credentials or motivations.

2 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von dwdavison@aol.com am 9. Januar 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
The very image of British delegates clustered around outdated maps of Mesopotamia and the Holy Land, muffling curses as they try to pin-point elusive rivers -- with Semitic names they can't even pronounce but which they intend to use as arbitrary borders of the new nations they're delineating -- is just one of the many poignant details Fromkin inserts in this marvelous history of the early 20th century Middle East.
The scope of the work is incredible. Fromkin opens with Churchill as First Lord of the Admirality, then follows the course of events that led to the dramatic showdown with the Ottoman Empire that erupted into the disastrous and devastating Eastern campaign of WWI.
Kitchener, T.E. Lawrence, Gertrude Belle, Abd al-Azziz, Sykes, Ben-Gurion, Attaturk, Woodrow Wilson, Emir Feisal, Lloyd George -- are all participants in this dynamic history, and are adroitly described at there best and worst moments. The starry-eyed hopes of the Romantic Arabists opposing the Protestant M.P.s who envisioned the revival of Israel "from Dan to Beersheba"; Hashemite potentates installed as the ruling monarchs of predominantly Shi'ite territories; British officials in India questioning the motives of their counterparts in Cairo, who hoped to revive a "Moslem Caliphate" to serve as a "Mohammaden" buffer zone stretching from the Levant to Afghanistan, all as an elaborate chess move in the perpetual Great Game, waged between Her Majesty's Government and the uncertain forces -- "undoubtedly Jewish" -- influencing the Russian Czar.
The fall of the House of Osman and the rise of the C.U.P.

Von Tom am 17. Juli 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
A Peace to End All Peace is enthralling in its reading and fascinating in scope, but a little bit of reflection after reading it brings to light some flaws. First, the history is somewhat lacking. I came to reading with a good deal of knowledge about it already, but someone without that prior knowledge might be lost. This is to some degree a reflection of Fromkin's scope, 7 or so years over a wide geographic area. Second, this book just wasn't satisfying. I can't really explain it, but I left this book feeling like I needed to know more, that reading those 600 pages had told an incomplete story. Nevertheless, I would rate A Peace to End All Peace to be a good and solid, if unspectacular, book.
