BIBLE AND SWORD by Barbara W. Tuchman (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “Barbara Tuchman is a wise and witty writer, a shrewd observer with a lively command of high drama.” (Philadelphia Inquirer) With the lucidity and vividness that characterize all her work, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Barbara Tuchman explores the complex relationship of Britain to Palestine that led to the founding of the modern Jewish state—and to many of the problems that plague the Middle East today. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator, Wanda McCaddon. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “In her métier as a narrative popular historical writer, Barbara Tuchman is supreme.” (Chicago Sun-Times) • EXPERIENCE. About 12.5 hours of narration. Created as a Folium enhancedAudio™ edition, this book includes extra functions and features not found on lesser players. • PLAYER CONTROLS. Includes listen (play), pause, multi-speed fast forward/reverse, jump ahead/back, chapter skip, volume control, one-touch chapter- and bookmark browser. There is also a “scrub” bar that finds any point inside the chapter with just a tap. • SLEEP TIMER. Have you ever fallen asleep watching TV or listening to a book? If so, you'll love this feature. Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing. • CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average. • CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book you’ve come. • OFFLINE LISTENING. You are airplane-ready! Once downloaded, listen uninterrupted without threat from a lost network connection. Downloads are usually just 5-10 minutes, but depend upon your network speed. • AUTO-BOOKMARKING. The player remembers where you stopped listening and returns to that exact spot when you open the book again. • TELL-A-FRIEND. An easy way to recommend the book to your friends or Twitter feed. • FEEDBACK. Share your ideas for books, functions, and features. We are very responsive to our listeners and appreciate all feedback and ideas. RATING: Suitable for anyone who wants to learn more about the fascinating history of the Middle East. ___________________ In this acclaimed account, Barbara Tuchman reveals that today’s troubles in the Middle East originated long before the first efforts at founding a modern state of Israel. With the lucidity and vividness that characterizes her work, Tuchman brings to life the development of these dual motives—the Bible and the sword—in the consciousness of the British people, until they were finally brought together at the end of World War I when the Balfour Declaration of 1917 established a British-sponsored national home for the modern survivors of the people of the Old Testament.
