Imperial History

"Who has controlled the Middle East over the course of history? Pretty much everyone. Egyptians, Turks, Jews, Romans, Arabs, Persians, Europeans...the list goes on. Who will control the Middle East today? That is a much bigger question."

This is a great animated map of the Middle east and the growth of empires there over the ages.

This seems to call out for a big theory of history.
