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.
