Editorial Reviews


“Sensible recommendations are woven through every chapter of the book for the next US administration” ―YaleGlobal Online

“For students of the region, journalists, policy-makers, or others interested in developing a nuanced understanding of US foreign policy towards the Middle East today, at a time when the sun seems to be setting on the US' 'unipolar moment', Fawaz Gerges' Obama and the Middle East could not have come at a better time.” ―LSE Review of Books

“In a thorough and clear manner, Gerges takes the reader through each of the major challenges the Obama administration has had to face in the Middle East, highlighting where the man of 'hope' and 'change' failed, and where the president has simply been a prisoner of history.” ―Middle East Policy Council
