English-Social Studies

Can anyone recommend a good book about the Middle east? It can be either fiction or nonfiction. We have to read it and report on it for both English and Social Studies. Thanks.

  1. I've heard this author speak, but haven't read the book yet:
    Dreams and Shadows: The Future of the Middle East, by Robin Wright

    There are also novels by Joel C. Rosenberg and two other particularly good ones:

    Leon Uris's book, The Haj.

    James Michener's book, The Source.

  2. Thank you very much, Writeacher.

  3. Ahh, you're welcome. I learn a lot from well written historical novels, and that's what Uris and Michener did so well. I'm looking forward to reading Wright's book, once I finish the book I'm currently plowing through!

    =)
