    Kohlhammer Verlag 2008; US$ 21.45

    Spätestens seit der islamischen Expansion sind die arabische Welt und Europa enge Nachbarn.

Dass diese Sehweise zu kurz ist, beweist Alfred Schlicht in diesem Geschichtsbuch, das von der islamischen Eroberung... more...

  • The Ancient Near Eastby Amanda H. Podany

    "Some mug had to do it," said Lee Kuan Yew, explaining what appeared to be an act of pure folly—the decision of a politically puny group of young nationalists to take on the powerful communist movement in a crucial struggle for the strategic gateway to the East—Singapore. In the first phrase, the antagonists became partners, for... more...
