One of the most thought-provoking books ever written about the Middle East, From Beirut to Jerusalem remains vital to our understanding of this complex and volatile region of the world. Three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas L. Friedman drew upon his ten years of experience reporting from Lebanon and Israel to write this now-classic work of journalism. In a new afterword, he updates his journey with a fresh discussion of the Arab Awakenings and how they are transforming the area, and a new look at relations between Israelis and Palestinians, and Israelis and Israelis. Rich with anecdote, history, analysis, and autobiography, From Beirut to Jerusalem will continue to shape how we see the Middle East for many years to come.

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.
