Publisher Description

A Second Edition of Thomas Friedman's stunning book, the first edition of which won the American National Book Award.

'If you're only going to read one book on the Middle East, this is it.' Seymour Hersh

In this lucid, incisive and memorable book, acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic, Friedman reaches deeper into the traumatic and complex recent history of the conflicts in the Middle East than any previous writer.

For this new edition, Friedman has added a further two chapters that bring the book up to 1995 and the unfolding - and stalling - of the Middle Eastern peace process.

From Beirut to Jerusalem is wonderully shrewd, surprisingly funny and indispensable to anyone seeking a fuller understanding of the political causes and psychological effects of the seemingly endless strife which besets this embattled region.

Author Biography

Thomas Friedman was born in Minneapolis in 1943. He completed his post-graduate Middle Eastern Studies at St Antony's College, Oxford, before becoming a journalist. From 1979 to 1984, he became the New York Times' Beirut bureau chief, moving south to Jerusalem in 1984 to become bureau chief there. In January 1989 he became the New York Times' chief diplomatic correspondent in Washington. Friedman has twice won the Pulitzer Prize for his reporting from the Middle East.

Review

'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.' Economist. 'A striking achievement.' Financial Times.
