Publisher's Summary

In From Beirut to Jerusalem, Thomas L. Friedman, a columnist for The New York Times and author of The Lexus and the Olive Tree, has drawn on his decade in the Middle East to produce the most trenchant, vivid, and thought-provoking book yet on the region. No issue in international politics has been more hotly debated than the Arab-Israeli conflict. And no reporter has illuminated both the conflict and the rhythms of life in the Middle East with more immediacy and brilliance than Friedman, a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting. Whether it's extremism, terrorism, or fundamentalism on right and left, Friedman puts all the operative currents into perspective with an inimitable specificity and clarity.


What the Critics Say

Was hoping for more

More of a personal account of someone who lived in the region during the early 80s. I was hoping for more historical context to the conflict, which there was very little.

Well written and easy to follow. Was just hoping for more.

Highly recommended!

One of the most captivating audio books I have listened to in a while. The book is more than ten years old but Thomas Friedman's story of life in Beirut during the war is timeless. Also brilliantly narrated and excellent technical quality of the recording. Highly recommended.
