A good analysis of the problems the US is facing in the Middle East. The Arab and Muslim perspective is also provided and comparative to other regions. Some prevailing concepts often thrown out by media and politicians are debunked. Overall, a solid and interesting book that provides a good grounding in recent Middle Eastern history and the problems faced by all nations involved to establish and sustain peace.
