Editorial Reviews

Review

"When it comes to understanding the tangle of contradictions addling present-day U. S. policy in the Arab world, Lloyd Gardner has become our most astute guide. This compact, timely, and altogether admirable study is his best yet."
—Andrew J. Bacevich, author of Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War

"This book is a clear, concise and insightful account of Egypt’s long decline, focusing on both the mistakes of its own leaders and the ignorant meddling of outside powers. It provides valuable answers to the questions many Americans asked as they watched the recent Egyptian uprising: 'Why is this happening? How did we get here? What does it mean?'"
—Stephen Kinzer, former New York Times correspondent and author of Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq

"[A] thought-provoking distillation of the convoluted dealings between diplomats and governments that calls for a new tack, in which American actions finally match our rhetoric."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lloyd C. Gardner does an adequate job of presenting some of the historical background regarding the development and implementation of United States policy towards Egypt. The text is useful as an introduction to the context that framed United States Egyptian policy however, Gardner's analysis relies heavily on State Department Memos and in this sense is somewhat lacking in that it fails to take account of Arabic sources. The text is hard to follow at points and appears to have been somewhat rushed. Topics within chapters are presented somewhat haphazardly and in several locations sentences, or even groups of sentences, are simply repeated verbatim in subsequent paragraphs which appears to evidence a lack of careful editing. Overall a good introduction to US Egyptian relations but those seeking in depth analysis, or even a clearer narrative, will be forced to supplement or look elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
This book talks about Egypt from king Farouq to Hosni Mobarak from different angels. It will add different dimension to the history part. It lacks some details in specific areas. What I like about the book most is, it gives you a true feeling of how much stress and power needed to make those decisions. Also the amount of manipulation in political world
