Review:

"Wright has long been one of the best-informed American journalists covering the Middle East, and her reputation is born out here....Her book will be essential reading for anybody who wants to know where it is heading."-New York Times Book Review." -"The New York Times Book Review" "If there is such a thing as a pinnacle in the landscape of international journalism, Robin Wright surely stands atop it." -"The New York Review of Books" "A thought-provoking and eminently readable look at the current and future generation of leaders in that important, politically troubled region. . . . Wright's skills at old-fashioned shoe-leather reporting are very much in evidence." -The Boston Globe
