From the web: “David Fromkin, Professor and Author on Mideast, Dies at 84”

David Fromkin, a nonacademic historian whose definitive book on the Middle East warned the West against nation-building by partitioning antagonistic religious groups behind arbitrary boundaries, died on Sunday in Manhattan. He was 84. The cause was heart failure, his nephew Daniel Soyer said.
