It feels as though the final chapter is missing
on January 27, 2013
Despite the authors' claims that they have the inside story on the death of Yasser Arafat (which, btw, is a political pseudonym; he was born Rahman al-Qudwa and took on the names Yasser, and later Arafat to hide his origins), and despite a very compelling account of how Arafat ran his organization (pitting each of his ghoulish deputies against each other), Matthew Kalman and Matt Beynon Rees do not deliver the goods.
All they give us is the suggestion that the cronies closest to him had the most to gain from his demise. No evidence of who did what, how when or why.
If Kalman and Rees actually *do* have the goods, they should have put them in the book and taken on the risk.
