If you are new to Middle Eastern history and must choose only one, I recommend Yambert's first then Cleveland and Bunton's A History of the Modern Middle East , because the former includes timelines and quicker reading of ancient to early modern history to get up to speed on the background before the book dives into the past hundred years, where it gets going around WWI.

It also has similar enough essays for consistency, but also different enough essays to give multiple views on matters due to th If you are new to Middle Eastern history and must choose only one, I recommend Yambert's first then Cleveland and Bunton's A History of the Modern Middle East , because the former includes timelines and quicker reading of ancient to early modern history to get up to speed on the background before the book dives into the past hundred years, where it gets going around WWI.

Then pick up Cleveland and Bunton's book for the full modern treatment. Cleveland and Bunton's, however, explores the 19th century to earlier and the Ottoman Empire in depth while Yambert's doesn't, which is why Yambert's is "contemporary" history. Both books were published in on the same press. They are great complements to each other. Both of these books are geared toward a US audience due to its focus at many times on US-Middle Eastern relations, but any English reader will benefit from the information.

It might be useful for those who are familiar with very recent Middle Eastern history to study backward in Cleveland and Bunton to see the connections grow. Otherwise, start with Yambert because of the Arab Spring coverage.

To sum: Yambert - get up to speed quickly, easier read, less details, broader coverage, multiple perspectives, past years history. Cleveland and Bunton - detailed, thorough, coverage of the 19th century to earlier history, but some gaps.
