Obama and the Middle East Reviews
"Despite the complexity of the issues involved, this is a highly readable book, recommended for anyone who regularly follows the news in this region." - Library Journal
"Starred Review. An exceptional book that thoroughly scrutinizes the struggles of all the nations of the Middle East and doesn't hesitate to distribute blame where it's warranted." - Kirkus Reviews
"Fawaz Gerges has written a provocative book that should make Americans think carefully about their country's role in the rapidly changing Middle East." - William B. Quandt, professor of Politics, University of Virginia
"A penetrating study by one of the most influential writers on a most troubled region, one that shows every sign of becoming more troubled still in the future. In Gerges' view, the American 'moment' in the Middle East is fast coming to an end with potential consequences we can only yet dimly perceive. A must-read." - Michael Cox, professor and co-director, IDEAS, The London School of Economics and Political Science
"Fawaz Gerges scrutinizes President Obama's Middle Eastern policy with the clinical accuracy and piercing insight of one of the leading authorities on the region. Distinguishing sweeping rhetoric from policy, he is compelling in demonstrating that while Obama has inherited reduced influence abroad and a rapidly changing landscape, American official attitudes remain largely constant." - James Piscatori, Durham University
