This book takes a novel look at the modern Middle East through the prisms of six cascading negative critical turning points.

"This book offers a unique way of looking at the events that have transpired in the Middle East over the past century. Interpreting events through the prism of good governance and dignity deficits offers the reader a chance to see how the same moment in time can be viewed by different audiences with sometimes tragic consequences. The authors' ability to use these past events as a way to shape future policies in and toward the region are most insightful."
- Roger Kangas, Washington D.C., USA.
"[This book] provide a remarkably balanced and insightful picture of the forces that have driven the Arab world over the past Century. Unlike so many other studies, it explains events from an Arab perspective [...] and the critical impact of the Arab-Israeli conflict without choosing sides. The final section on "dignity deficits" makes it clear that the fact the underlying forces involved are not driven by problem in Islam or by some "clash between civilizations," and provides realistic and balanced priorities for dealing with problems that the Arab world must now solve to move forward."
- Anthony H. Cordesman, Washington D.C., USA
"At long last a book on the Middle East which is free from the usual Western stereotypes of Arabs and Muslims [...] The result is a thoughtful and thought-provoking book on an eventual century in Middle Eastern history."
