‘Jubilantly intelligent – a dashing hybrid of autobiography and journalism… a lifeline to the sane, a beacon to the hopeful.’
Michael Coren, The Times
‘Friedman fills the yawning gap between verbiage and understanding with grace, precision and insight.’
‘A striking achievement.’
WINNER OF THE AMERICAN NATIONAL BOOK AWARD
In this lucid, incisive and memorable book, hailed on both sides of the Atlantic, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Thomas Friedman reaches deeper into the traumatic, complex recent history of the conflicts in the Middle East than any previous writer. 'From Beirut to Jerusalem' is wonderfully shrewd, suprisingly funny, and indispensable to anyone seeking a fuller understanding of the political causes and psychological effects of the seemingly endless litany of strife which besets this embattled region. This Second Edition has been fully updated to include an account of the nascent Middle East peace process begun in 1992.
"Jubilantly intelligent – a dashing hybrid of autobiography and journalism. Friedman's book is a lifeline to the sane, a beacon to the hopeful".
MICHAEL COREN, 'Sunday Times'
"Friedman's approach is both original and thought – provoking. His analysis of the changing shape of relations between Israel and the American-Jewish community is masterful …a striking achievement."
ANDREW GOWERS, 'Financial Times'
"A richly textured work, saturated with grim and appalling truths"
CHAIM POTOK ,' Washington Post '
" Friedman fills the yawning gap between verbiage and understanding with grace, precision and insight."
"A sparkling intellectual guidebook…an engrossing journey not to be missed."
