This world profoundly needs an understanding of the long history between "The West" and the Islamic cultures of the Middle East. As "Uncle Eric" writes epistle after epistle the reader clearly sees through layers and layers of propaganda put out by the government, as well as through the overly-simplistic, modern views held by the young country of America. Filled with history, Maybury gives the perfect amount of detail as he works his way through the crusades to the colonialist "interests" of Britain, Russia & the U.S. to finally the current wars in the Middle East. Lamenting the United State's decision to ever become involved in Islamic affairs when it invaded the "shores of Tripoli" in the 1800s, Maybury convincingly explains the bitter grudges held by Muslims who have continually been occupied by Western forces for the last thousand years; and provides a blueprint on how to get out it while we still can. 271 pages, softcover.

Maybury has amazing insight into the historical background of everything that is going on in our world today! His entire collection of of books as a whole are priceless to anyone wanting to have an accurate understanding of history and current world events. This book in particular explores the issues of Islam and the Middle East, but because all world events are so interconnected, it doesn't stop there. Reading his books, you find yourself saying again and again, "Why haven't I ever heard this before!" Maybury writes in a way that simplifies the complicated issues facing us today!

Review 2 for The Thousand-Year War in the Mideast: How it Affects You Today
This book gives an unBiblical and historically incorrect view of the Muslims and the wars they have waged throughout history. We have been studying Islam and the Middle East and are using this book as a discussion starter and to check our sons' knowledge and ability to refute inaccurate information. CBD sells a number of books by Robert Spencer who is an expert on Islam and the Middle East. Those books are excellent for accurate historical and current information.
