Despite having received negative attention from the Media for his "Radical" views, Khalidi does a very good job in delievering the history of the Middle East, something that mainstream media deffinately tries to hide, along with the causes of the dificulties that have been arising. He deffinativly had substancial information to back up his beliefs of the US and Soviet strategies during the cold war, deffinativly a great read! However, I would sugguest you have a brief look at the history of the middle east, starting from the late 19th century and the 20th century. It should give you a better understanding of the book.
