Best Of Enemies Volume 2 : 1953-1984 Hardcover

David B.
The second volume of Jean-Pierre Filiu and David B.'s acclaimed history of US-Middle East relations documents a period of dramatic conflict and change, beginning in the 1950s and ending with the Lebanese War of 1982.The Blitzkrieg of the Six-Day War saw the Jewish state triple in size. In less than a week, the Middle East was transformed: Israel had taken the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, the West Bank from Jordan and the Golan Heights from Syria. 
 
It was a conflict that began an era of U.S.-led intervention in the Middle East, which continued in the lead-up to the Iranian Revolution of 1979. When Soviet troops invaded Afghanistan, the CIA began a proxy war by supporting anti-Soviet Muslim forces, among them a young Saudi, Osama Bin Laden. Best of Enemies Volume 2 is a perceptive and authoritative account of a turbulent historical period.
