“Dr. Sharpes’ most recent book, A World Elegy: Perspectives on Global Affairs, is a good read for anyone hoping to unpack the complexity of factors influencing the body politic of the mid-east and near environs. Sharpes’ book describes and analyzes current conditions in a dozen countries and how their challenges are interconnected. His writing combines the best of historical research with anecdotal observations based upon his experiences learned through visits to the several countries examined in the book.
In my reading, I came away feeling like I had been part of a conversation. The author’s blending of personal experiences, reflective comments, summaries and predictions were appreciated. His use of metaphors (e.g. Crows over Islamabad) provided useful meaning to his descriptions of poverty, misguided educational efforts, environmental destruction and other challenges common to most of the countries he describes.
For me, the first two chapters (Mess in the Middle East and ISIS and Militant Affiliates) and the Epilog provided the most comprehensive summaries of past, present and future challenges facing this region of the world and, for that matter, what and how the United States will be challenged in its approach to foreign policy strategy and initiatives. The fourteen chapters between these bookends, provide the reader with useful, first-hand observations that illustrate the ways in which religion, culture, environment and other factors that have contributed to Sharpes’ views about the future of the region.
Finally, as we watch the news describe the changes occurring each day in this tinderbox region (Syrian refugee crisis, Afghanistan troop deployment, Iranian nuclear ambitions) we will be able to count Sharpes Elegy as a useful weigh station to the ever shifting sands that blow across that region on the world.” - Wayne Worner, Dean Emeritus, Virginia Tech, Virginia, USA
