This book is so flawed starting from the first chapter where the author Essad Bey (Lev Nussimbaum) claims that his father met his mother while walking past a prison in Baku and married her the same day. The truth is that Lev's parents were living in Georgia and married in the Synagogue there in 1904. That's just the beginning of Essad Bey's fantasies. He's a great story teller. If you're looking for a book where you can't tell what is truth and what is reality, be sure to read Essad Bey's books about the Caucasus, Stalin, Nicolas II, Reza Shah, Lenin, Mohammed. They all received scorching critiques in their day from New York Times and other famous review journals. Historians in Azerbaijan and Georgia consider Blood and Oil in the Orient to be so flawed and so unreliable that it cannot even be categorized as "autobiography". Who needs another such book in an environment when we have enough lies to fill our everyday lives. Why waste your money! Why waste your time!
