    [E–pub/E–book] uicksand This book is a stellar read I think its strength is that its analysis is right down the middle The book is able to give enough historical background while bringing analysis to current conditions The author does have some criticisms of Israel and American policy but not in a manner that I would find problematic as I suspect some other reviewers here do

This review is from uicksand America s Pursuit of Power in the Middle East Hardcover Incredibly poor research On the little thingsBen Gurion came from Russia Wrong he came from Poland And on the big thingsthe Jews turned down the Peel Commission proposal for partition of Palestine in 1937 While this is true Wawro states it s because the Jews would not compromise What he leaves out is that the Peel commission only allowed the Jews the area immediately around Haifa and nothing Such a state would have never been viable He also forgets to mention that the Palestinians turned it down because any Jewish presence in the area at all was unaccptable to them The book continues to rant against Israel claiming that paraphrasefollowing Israeli aggression in starting the Six Day War of 1967 Arab lands were annexed No lands were annexed other than the Old City of Jerusalem As to Israeli aggression he conveniently forgets that the blockade of the Israeli port of Eilat was the opening salvo of that war in addition to the massing of troops in Sinai This book is as worthless as the garbage written by Mearscheimer of the University of Chicago several years agohe of course critiues this on the back cover and loves it DON T BUY UNLESS YOU WANT TO READ FICTION

Everybody should be made to read this book Wawro offers insight into the Middle East from the early 1900 s till today He meticulously cites every piece of evidence he presents the last 100pgs of the book is all notes and citations However this book is extremely long 612 pgs and is uite indepth Wawro seemed to leave no detail out even when it was needed The book can be confusing if you don t keep all the names straight or don t understand military terminology But all together this is a great book with some amazing details about not only what happened but how many in the State Dept CIA and others in DC viewed this actions happening

Read & download » uicksand È PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Geoffrey Wawro ¼ 2 Read Download ï PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ¼ Geoffrey Wawro Geoffrey Wawro approaches America's role in the Middle East in a fundamentally new way by encompassing the last century of the entire region rather than focusing narrowly on a particular country or era The result is a definitive and revelatory history whose drama tragedy and rich irony he relates with unprecedented verve Wawro combed archives in the United States and Europe and traveled the Middle East to unearth new insights into the hidden motivations backroom dealing and outright espionage that shaped some of the most tumultuous events of the last one hundred years Wawro offers piercing analysis of iconic events from the birth of Israe. uicksand is a work that has been needed for some time an all encompassing look at the history of America s involvement in the Middle East When it comes to politics relations with the Middle East are often a prime topic of discussion and many including myself are grossly undereducated on the past events and relationships between the various polities in the region and the United States Geoffrey Wawro seeks to remedy this by tracking the region s relationship with the west from slightly before World War One up to the present timeWawro begins his discussion with the complicated story of the creation of the state of Israel a process which while fueled and partially caused by Nazi persecution had begun long before that He depicts the creation of this state as the basis for most of the problems occurring their to this day Tensions between Jews and Arabs have marked the region ever since often breaking out into escalating violence With the discovery of the vast amounts of oil in the region the story takes a different turn as the Cold War superpowers began using the middle east for resources manipulating various polities as pawns in a larger game Sometimes this led to the United States taking covert or overt action to topple regimes or uphold them based on resource access and nothing Thus America found itself often supporting oppressive dictators because they offered a buffer to the Soviets or easy access to oil rather than because they upheld democratic ideas or exhibited admirable social justice stancesThe book is replete with Wawro s trademark criticism and wit Nearly everyone involved takes a lashing from Wawro s pen While he is incredibly critical of America s actions in the Middle East he also is uick to point out just how deviant some Middle Eastern leaders can be He attacks Israel for their aggressive expansionist and deceptive tactics both on the battlefield and in the Washington lobby He is critical of America s habit of using military force to exert it s will on other countries regardless of the wishes of the people or the impact upon the political situation He is eually as critical of Middle Eastern leaders such as Nasser Hussein and others who rule in the manner of organized crime lords While the book is full of venom for all parties at least his criticism falls on most actors euallyIf Wawro does single out any group for an extra helping of critiue it is the George W Bush administration and the Neoconservative groupthink that marked it Wawro argues that the Neocons wanted to attack Ira regardless of whether there was a true reason for this or not based on faulty assumptions and the denial of evidence contrary to their own convictions While some conservatives would view this analysis as ridiculous Wawro uses what unclassified documentation he can and makes a strong case that the Ira invasion in 2003 was unnecessary and only fanned the flames of terrorism essentially making al aeda even stronger Of course the situation is incredibly complex and Wawro spends several chapters following the creation of al aeda due to American funding and training of Mujahideen forces to fight Russia in Afghanistan then includes a detailed biography of Osama bin Laden and the lead up to 911 His arguments are well written witty and biting but most of all convincing although he pushes his points home much harder than the average historianAs a military historian the book shines most when describing the operations of particular conflicts His analysis and narration of the Egypt Israeli wars the Gulf War and the Ira War among others are all superb as is to be expected While the history of the Middle East is complicated Wawro breaks it down in a wonderfully structured book The logical flow of his ideas and the solid structure of his writing should be a model for all writers of history Like most historians Wawro has his points to make and he makes them with a forceful hammer blow rather than the subtle undertones of many historical writers But the value of this work remains high For anyone wishing to be up to speed on the current situation in the Middle East and America s place in it this book is a must read
