A well written history of American involvement in the Middle East.

For the casual reader, 'The Arabists' is an interesting and readable window into a little-known subset of the U.S. foreign policy community. If you happen to work with or in this community, the book is useful historical background; the day of the Arabist elite is over, but some of its attitudes and customs linger.

This is one of few books written with a detailed knowledge of the complexities of the American-Arabic relations and with a genuine and honest attitude to this great culture.Its certainely the attitude America needs to take to establish peace not only in the middle east but also here in America in the years to come.A vision based on fairness and objectivity and free from all the jewish lobby that poison our foriegn policy.
