About this title

Synopsis:

Filiu and David B. draw striking parallels between ancient and contemporary political history in this look at the US-Middle East conflict. The reader is transported to the pirate-choked Mediterranean sea, where Christians and Muslims continue the crusades, only this time on water. As the centuries pass, the traditional victims of the Muslim pirates--the British, French, and Spanish--all become empire-building powers whose sights lie beyond the Mediterranean.

Review:

A Difficult subject to deal with objectively, but Filiu and David B. manage it, and produce something rather intriguing, educational, and strangely entertaining. --ForbiddenPlanet.co.uk

A fascinating inside look into the origins of not only the United States of America and the current Middle East but also the internal trappings of international politics --Brokenfrontier.com

This timely, beautifully drawn account provides a wonderfully involving history lesson. --The Guardian
