In From Beirut to Jerusalem
, Thomas L. Friedman, a columnist for The New York Times
and author of The Lexus and the Olive Tree
, has drawn on his decade in the Middle East to produce the most trenchant, vivid, and thought-provoking book yet on the region.
No issue in international politics has been more hotly debated than the Arab-Israeli conflict. And no reporter has illuminated both the conflict and the rhythms of life in the Middle East with more immediacy and brilliance than Friedman, a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting. Whether it's extremism, terrorism, or fundamentalism on right and left, Friedman puts all the operative currents into perspective with an inimitable specificity and clarity.
