THE BEST BOOK ABOUT THE MIDDLE EAST I'VE EVER READ
This is the best book on the Israeli-Palestinian situation that I have ever read (and I've read many of them). The author focuses on the history of Hamas, and tells it in a way that clarifies the role of all nations/factions in the region (Israel, the PLO, Fatah, the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan, and others). We're introduced to the leaders of these entities, as well as to U.S. presidents, and shown how they have driven the ongoing drama in the region. The author is an Australian journalist who has been studying the region for decades, and has met and interviewed all the players. The result is an objective, compelling page-turner. I cannot recommend it more highly. I bought the book simply to learn about Hamas, but I now find myself with a much greater understanding of the entire region.
