This best-selling history is the first fully comprehensive history of America's involvement in the Middle East from George Washington to George W. Bush. As Niall Ferguson writes, "If you think America's entanglement in the Middle East began with Roosevelt and Truman, Michael Oren's deeply researched and brilliantly written history will be a revelation to you, as it was to me. With its cast of fascinating characters--earnest missionaries, maverick converts, wide-eyed tourists, and even a nineteenth-century George Bush--Power, Faith, and Fantasy is not only a terrific read, it is also proof that you don't really understand an issue until you know its history."

A must read for any serious student of US/Middle Eastern relations.

There was so much I didn't know that was discussed in this book. It is a serious history, not something to be read at the beach. But then again, why not. I found this book fascinating - but one I need to renew often as it is not a "quick read".
