What disappointed you about The Persian Gulf States?
This is not a short history of Persian gulf states. There is nothing about UAE, Qatar and Bahrain history in this book. This is a short and very selective history of Iran, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
What could Wendy McElroy and Sheldon Richman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Not at all. Narration is fine but when it comes to quotes, it's totally ridiculous. Actors with weird accents, try to talk like an Arab or Persian king and it's more funny and distracting. As an Iranian I can tell you that often time they have Indian accent instead of Persian or Arabic accent!
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Hackes?
He is fine.

For someone very new to the various arab states, this is a good first history primer. A bit dated, but useful for the low cost.
