Abu Nidal: Gun for Hire based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is an interesting book that is worth reading. At times, it can become very detailed, when in fact some of it could be left out. The author includes details such as group members' code names, which seems almost inconsequential because they are rarely, if ever, mentioned in the book again. At various points in the book he'll start to talk about certain topics and then throw in a comment about talking about that more later and that seems to take some of the momentum out of the subject matter. I would recommend this book to those who are readers of Middle Eastern issues, and more specifically, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. I did find his theory that Abu Nidal was working for Mossad [Israeli Intelligence] interesting, but not completely convincing. Overall, it's worth reading, but people with an interest in the Middle East will get more out of it than just any ordinary reader.
