It was here, in the time of the Caliphs, that the Thousand and One Nights were set. Yet it has also been a city of great hardships, beset by epidemics, famines, floods, and numerous foreign invasions which have brought terrible bloodshed. This is the history of its storytellers and its tyrants, of its philosophers and conquerors.Here, in the first new history of Baghdad in nearly 80 years, Justin Marozzi brings to life the whole tumultuous history of what was once the greatest capital on earth.Justin Marozzi is a Councillor of the Royal Geographic Society and a Senior Research Fellow at Buckingham University. He has broadcast for BBC Radio Four, and regularly contributes to a wide range of publications, including the Financial Times, for which he has worked in Iraq, Afghanistan and Darfur. His previous books include the bestselling Tamerlane: Sword of Islam, a Sunday Telegraph Book of the Year (2004), and The Man Who Invented History: Travels with Herodotus.

HASH(0x9856e900) étoiles sur 5 An Amazing City 9 septembre 2014
Par B. J. Taylor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I loved this book! Yes, it is slow in the beginning. But that was due to trying to grasp the history of Baghdad from the prophet Mohammad's time down to the period that has names we are more familiar with. But you have to do that early history to understand the animosity between Shia and Sunni. Then when it down into more modern times it picks up.

I have studied the history of Mesopotamia but this is the first book I have read on just the city of Baghdad. I have always had a passion for Baghdad. The city has swung from being bloody to peace and back to be bloody. But during its "Golden Ages" it had to have been a wonderful place to live. Now my heart aches for it.

Baghdad truly was the Cradle of Civilization. The arts, sciences, literature, poetry that came from there was amazing. It was a city for intellectuals. I do find it sad now that the Jewish community that was there throughout history is now gone. And it may be happening now to the Christian community. Baghdad used to be a place that thrived from diversity. Now that diversity is being smothered.

The Baghdadi people have had to be strong and resilient while surviving the many raids upon and the power-hungry rulers that cared nothing for the people. Justin Marozzi did an amazing job with his research and pulling it all together. My only complaint with this book was that I could not easily access the numerous footnotes. However, that was not the author's fault. I received the digital galley from Net Galley, and it was just too cumbersome to try to get to the footnotes and then back to where I was. I imagined that problem is resolved with the finalized e-book. There is a wonderful bibliography at the end. I will be reading some of the books listed there.

Given To Me For An Honest Review

This isn't the typical book I read but I decided to read it anyway. It did start out a bit slow in the beginning but as I read it ended up a page turner for me. It is a very interesting historical read which I enjoyed reading. It shows what Baghdad has gone through. It has been troubled with many natural disasters, robbed by northern raiders and. incursions of all surrounding tribes. Justin Marozzi gives us descriptions of the many faces of Bagdad and what it has gone through over the centuries. I recommend it.

HASH(0x9856ed80) étoiles sur 5 Fascinating History of Baghdad 12 octobre 2014
Par Michael R. Deutsch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This was a fascinating book. Justin Marozzi’s book, Baghdad: City of Peace, City of Blood, is about the city of Baghdad, looking at it from a historical view to the present day. If you don’t like history, the book will be a struggle, since the book is filled with a great deal of historical accounts. I enjoy history and appreciated gaining a greater understanding of Baghdad.

Reading this helped me to better understand more about the people of Baghdad and their civilization. I also gained a better appreciated for the differences between the Sunni’s and Shia’s. The book details the brutality of fighting within the land and the peace which was also found in the same land.

Marozzi leads back to the modern era, discussing themes and images which we have a better grasp of today. Baghdad seemed to be a place filled with great diversity and a place filled with a great deal of culture. I appreciated reading this book. Again, it starts slow, and you need to be interested in history and Middle Eastern history, that is, Baghdad.

I received a digital copy of this book through Net Galley, in exchange for an honest review of this book.

Fascinating read given the state of Baghdad today - in its heyday an intellectuals city then troubled by natural disasters and incursions by surrounding tribes and sacked by the northern raiders. Great writing, vivid descriptions of the many faces of life in a city over the centuries.

HASH(0x9497e15c) étoiles sur 5 Shorten title to "City of Blood" 27 août 2014

Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Very interesting historical read (actually a little depressing & dry), which could use less repetition and better chronological organisation.
