some topics such Fairy Tales from Shakespeare (Classic Reprint) as coverage of the Arab Springnd other less studied Middle Eastern countries Cleveland Lord Malachi (Book 4) and Bunton s however explores the 19th century to earliernd the Ottoman Empire in depth while Yambert s doesn t which is why Yambert s is contemporary history Both books were published in 2013 on the same press They re great complements to each otherIf you re new to Middle Eastern history nd must choose only one I recommend Yambert "s first then Cleveland nd Bunton s because the former includes timelines Fred Kabotie Hopi Indian Artist and uicker reading ofncient "first then Cleveland Battlescars: A Rock Roll Romance and Bunton s because the former includes timelinesnd uicker reading of Changes in the Land: Indians, Colonists, and the Ecology of New England ancient early modern history to get up to speed on the background before the book dives into the past hundred years where it gets goinground WWI It lso has similar enough essays for consistency but lso different enough essays to give multiple views on matters due to the 30 contributors Then pick up Cleveland 101 Things® to Do with a Cake
