Best of Enemies: A History of US and Middle East Relations
by David B.
A graphic history of US and Middle East Relations 1783–1953. It was an American who first described the “Barbary” lands of the Mediterranean basin as “the Middle East” – a region by which America, ever since its own revolutionary foundation, has always measured its power. Acclaimed historian Jean-Pierre Filiu and award-winning artist David B. here tell the story of the blockades, broadsides, and betrayals of this foreign affair – a wary co-dependency that, from the Epic of Gilgamesh to the Eisenhower era, and from gold to oil, has continued to define our modern world.
