Idinopulos (religious studies, Miami U. in Oxford, Ohio) recounts the history of modern Palestine from Napoleon's invasion of the Middle East in 1798 to the founding of the Jewish state of Israel in 1948. It is a story of dramatic confrontation of world empires for possession and profit, the clash of Islam with the Christian West, the zeal of pioneers, the last days of Turkish and European imperialism, and the first breaths of Arab and Jewish nationalism, all played out against the backdrop of a wasted land that experienced an extraordinary reclamation.
