It further points to President Obama’s final “shot” at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a man that the administration has b [...]


    2. While foreign readers unfamiliar with the details of Netanyahu's history in Israeli politics, and his domination of it since 2009, may find this book informing and interesting, those who know the details (not to mention those who lived through them) will find nothing new here. The years Netanyahu spent reforming the Israeli economy do not receive enough attention; his comeback in 2009, a methodical and intriguing time in his life, is just framed as mostly the product of chance; and his motives t [...]


    3. I only gave it 3 stars because it although it wasn't a bad read it was fairly mechanical and journalistic in the writing.

    4. I won a copy of this book.If you're looking for a good history of the middle east from 1990-present, give this book a chance. This is a thick book with lots of information about the middle east, much of which I was unaware.
