A Palestinian professor from the West Bank gives his version of U.S. policy in the Middle East over the past 50 years. Some of his points, including the major argument on the centrality of the question of self-determination for the Palestine Arabs, are well taken, but the book is marred by an overly partisan approach, conclusions unsupported by fact, and careless research and editing.
