    While this is an academic read, it does provide an interesting history of workers movements in the Middle East. Unfortunately, it is very Egypt-centric and provides almost no insight into the Arabian Peninsula (do to the lack of information available). While it is a bit dry, it is undeniable that Beinin is more than adequately familiar with the subject matter.

    So far: dense, but informative. A pretty good, very modern, economic history of the Middle East, which is pretty well written, at least compared to most of similar books I've looked at.
