Staff Reviews

Even through this book was written 12 years ago, it has been newly
updated and is one of the most concise, unbiased descriptions about the
crisis in the Middle East. Tom Freidman is a journalist for the New York
Times and was assigned to the Middle East for several years. He has met
all of “the players”, including Sharon, Arafat and Sadam Hussein. His
telling of the situations that reside there should be required reading
by all the leaders of the world and every citizen who cares. His writing
is highly informative, straight forward and never boring. Our book club
found this to be one of the best books we have ever read!

— Karen L.


Winner of the 1989 National Book Award for nonfiction, this extraordinary bestseller is still the most incisive, thought-provoking book ever written about the Middle East. Thomas L. Friedman, twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting, and now the Foreign Affairs columnist on the op-ed page of the New York Times, drew on his ten years in the Middle East to write a book that The Wall Street Journal called "a sparkling intellectual guidebook... an engrossing journey not to be missed." Now with a new chapter that brings the ever-changing history of the conflict in the Middle East up to date, this seminal historical work reaffirms both its timeliness and its timelessness. "If you're only going to read one book on the Middle East, this is it." -- Seymour Hersh. "From Beirut To Jerusalem is the most intelligent and comprehensive account one is likely to read." -- New York Times Book Review.
