Summary
"Begun as the United States moved its armed forces into Iraq, Rashid Khalidi's book examines the record of Western involvement in the region and analyzes the likely outcome of our most recent Middle East incursions. Drawing on his encyclopedic knowledge of the political and cultural history of the entire region as well as interviews and documents, Khalidi paints a chilling scenario of our present situation and yet offers a tangible alternative that can help us find the path to peace rather than Empire."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
Describes the history of Western involvement in the Middle East and argues that the United States ignores history and is blindly committed to a path that is doomed for failure
