A Second Edition of Thomas Friedman's stunning book, the first
edition of which won the American National Book Award. 'If you're
only going to read one book on the Middle East, this is it.'
Seymour Hersh In this lucid, incisive and memorable book, acclaimed
on both sides of the Atlantic, Friedman reaches deeper into the
traumatic and complex recent history of the conflicts in the Middle
East than any previous writer. For this new edition, Friedman has
added a further two chapters that bring the book up to 1995 and the
unfolding -- and stalling -- of the Middle Eastern peace process.
From Beirut to Jerusalem is wonderully shrewd, surprisingly funny
and indispensable to anyone seeking a fuller understanding of the
political causes and psychological effects of the seemingly endless
strife which besets this embattled region.
