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 .

This is an excellent, very accessible book on the more recent history of the Middle East. Israel in particular, written from a personal point of view.

I read it some time ago, but wanted to read the new intro and afterward in the updated 2012 edition, so I put a hold on it. Alas, the 1995 edition was put on my shelf. I'll try again.

I have been sent the 1990 copy with added chapter. I understand there is a 2012 or 2013 edition which I assume I have been charged with.
