From the Publisher:

Winner of the 1989 National Book Award for nonfiction, this extraordinary bestseller is still the most incisive, thought-provoking book ever written about the Middle East. Thomas L. Friedman, twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting, and now the Foreign Affairs columnist on the op-ed page of the New York Times, drew on his ten years in the Middle East to write a book that The Wall Street Journal called "a sparkling intellectual guidebook... an engrossing journey not to be missed." Now with a new chapter that brings the ever-changing history of the conflict in the Middle East up to date, this seminal historical work reaffirms both its timeliness and its timelessness. "If you're only going to read one book on the Middle East, this is it." -- Seymour Hersh. "From Beirut To Jerusalem is the most intelligent and comprehensive account one is likely to read." -- New York Times Book Review.

About the Author:

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.
