“Will shape our thinking about America and the Middle East for years.”―Christopher Dickey, Newsweek

This best-selling history is the first fully comprehensive history of America’s involvement in the Middle East from George Washington to George W. Bush. As Niall Ferguson writes, “If you think America’s entanglement in the Middle East began with Roosevelt and Truman, Michael Oren’s deeply researched and brilliantly written history will be a revelation to you, as it was to me. With its cast of fascinating characters―earnest missionaries, maverick converts, wide-eyed tourists, and even a nineteenth-century George Bush―Power, Faith, and Fantasy is not only a terrific read, it is also proof that you don’t really understand an issue until you know its history.” 68 black-and-white photographs, 4 maps

About the Author:

Michael B. Oren, Senior Fellow at the Shalem Center, has written numerous works on the Middle East, including the New York Times bestsellers Six Days of War and Power, Faith, and Fantasy. He has taught at Harvard, Yale, and Georgetown universities, and currently serves as Israel’s ambassador to the United States.

From AudioFile:

The remarkable panorama of U.S. involvement in the Middle East is effectively delivered. Beginning with the singular figure of explorer John Ledyard, the author describes a popular fascination with the Orient, as the Middle East was then called, a fascination most often shattered when encountering the real thing. From missionaries to educators to physicians to presidents, Oren details the personalities of those who ventured East and the social environments each encountered in the various eras described. Norman Dietz plows through the reading with a slow cadence, only occasionally fumbling over a phrase in Hebrew or another of the various languages. In truth, he often sounds tired, like a weary grandfather, but his voice maintains a kindly and pleasant expression. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
