Mini history with a big punch

Three hours flies by as you jump from one country to the next, each so different in the paths they have taken to arrive at today. If this book were twice as long it would still be a wonderful introduction to this part of the world. For most of these people who have lived so close to each other geographically to have such diverse histories is a marvel in itself.
