Brendan O'Malley, Ian Craig this one is easy to read
2------Hostage to History: Cyprus from the Ottomans to Kissinger
Christopher Hitchens

Those are about recent history. We have 9000 years of history here. For which parts you are interested?

usually anastasiac, places like ours dont history, but histories...
as a concequence, in order to come closer to understanding what happened, you should imo, read a book from both perspectives.
it is not that these books usually lie...its just the usually forget half of the story :wink:

hope thats not to much work
