Summary
"Kingmakers is the story of how the modern Middle East came to be, told through the lives of the Britons and Americans who shaped it. All helped enthrone rulers in a region whose very name is an Anglo-American invention. The narrative is character-driven, and the aim is to restore to life the colorful figures who for good or ill gave us the Middle East in which Americans are enmeshed today."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
