A Brave Voice of Political Clarity on Middle East Affairs,
This review is from: Resurrecting Empire: Western Footprints and America's Perilous Path in the Middle East (Hardcover)
Khalidi cuts through the pretense and rhetoric of mid-east politics to deconstruct the xenophobic and misguided U.S. policy decisions which laid the destructive ground work toward a perpetual state of perceived unrest. The unrest, of course, being those instances that events do not favor U.S. economic and political gains. This is a facinating and insightful treatise which should be required reading for the President, and every Senator, Congressman, and cabinet member.
