Time: The Middle East: The History, the Conflict, the Culture, the Faiths

Time Magazine recently put out a softcover book on "The Middle East", but it seems like the editors had quite a sense of humor or irony. What made me laugh and almost fork over the $14 is located near the bottom of the cover.

Check it out below.

Time: The Middle East: The History, the Conflict, the Culture, the Faiths with an introduction by none other than Jimmy Carter. You have got to be kidding me is what I thought, Mad magazine must have had a hand in this.

When looking for someone to introduce a book on the Middle East, did they get shot down by something like 942 people before asking Carter?

I guess you can expect this from Time Magazine. After all, I was a little confused by a couple of the previous special editions as well.

Do you have other questionable calls by the Time staff? The History of The World Series (introduction by Harry Carey) comes to mind. Post them in the comments.
