The Great War for Civilisation: The Conquest of the Middle East

Fourth Estate, 2005 - 1366 sayfa
British foreign correspondent Fisk has been based in the Middle East for the last 25 years, reporting from the world's worst trouble-spots. This is his account of fifty years of bloodshed and tragedy in the area, from the Palestinian-Israeli bloodbath to the war against Iraq. All the most dangerous men of the past quarter century in the region--from bin Laden to Khomeini, from Saddam to Ariel Sharon--come alive in these pages. Fisk has met most of them, and even spent the night out at a guerrilla camp with bin Laden himself. In a narrative of blood and mass killing, Fisk tells the story of the growing hatred of the West by millions of Muslims, the West's cynical support for the Middle East's most ruthless dictators and America's ever more powerful military presence as well as its uncritical, unconditional support for Israel's occupation of Palestinian land.--From publisher description.
