Best of Enemies: A History of US and Middle East Relations, Part Two: 1954-1984
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
In this, the second volume of their acclaimed "must-read" account of the proxy cockpit of postwar history, Jean-Pierre Filiu and David B. trace the arduous trail from Suez to the Six-Day War, from Yom Kippur to Beirut. With merciless clarity, they lay bare the implacable factionalism and brutal realpolitik that continue to infest the oil, sand and blood of the Middle East – here played out on the three-dimensional chessboard of an international Cold War always on the brink of 'going hot'.
