Quotes & Awards

  • “Fresh and well-informed…Kinzer argues persuasively that despite their very different governments—one friendly and free, the other hostile and theocratic—both Turkey and Iran are host to vibrant democratic traditions that make them natural long-term partners of the United States…[A] lively, character-driven approach to history.”

    Washington Post

  • “Because we’re so accustomed to bad news out of the Middle East, trouble seems inevitable. Reset suggests that needn’t be so. But can anybody hear its lucid, historically grounded points above the shouting and the gunfire?”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “At once a stern critique of American foreign policy and a concise, colorful, and compelling modern history of Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Israel. A former journalist for the New York Times and the Boston Globe, Kinzer is a masterful storyteller. His cast of characters leaps off the page…Kinzer makes a compelling case…that the road to peace in the Middle East runs through Ankara and Tehran, not Jerusalem.”

    " Liked this book a lot. For a long time I have felt so uninformed regarding the Middle East. This book gave me a lot of history and helped fill in political and religious information. Would really recommend. "

    " I thought that this was a pretty good book, but truly enjoyed his other book Crescent and Star more. Seemed a little disjointed at times and all of a sudden I was reading about Israel. Still very informative and I learned a lot about Iran. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 11/22/2011

    " If there is any "good" consequence about early 21st century world terrorism, it is that it's captured my attention and focused my neglected interest in middle world history. I like this book's description of early 20th century events a lot and intend to seek out the author's other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tariq Mahmood | 9/8/2011

    " Book reads like a long newspaper article on the subject. I like the way in which the relationship of all four countries was briefly discussed relative to US. Ataturk and Reza Shah, Ibn Saud were also profiled. It could be a way forward for peace in the Middle East if US changes it's policy. "
