Product description

Review

A brilliant book.--Hugh Nissenson

Powerful . . . must be considered and appreciated even by those who think they disagree with it.--Amos Elon

Refreshing . . . most stimulating . . . as with the best historical works, The Closed Circle is the outcome, and the resolution, of a puzzlement.--Elie Kedourie

A brilliant insight into the way Arab societies work. A healthy corrective, a thought-provoking study.--David K. Shipler "The New York Times "

Excellent. Having lived in Arabia for six years, I can say that this text superbly sets out the historical events that led us to the current situation today and explains many aspects of the culture that are misunderstood.--Daniel Kirk, Macon State College

A landmark for understanding the politics of the Middle East . . . as brilliant as it is depressing.--Daniel Pipes, director, Middle East Forum; author of Militant Islam Comes to America

This is definitely a book to be read, if also one to be thought about carefully and rather critically.--David Morgan "Times Literary Supplement "
