Sowing Crisis

Prior to reading Sowing Crisis, I had never thought that an "Arab Cold War" existed and that it was a direct product of the "Cold War" between the two major powers of the time, the USA & the USSR.

In "Sowing Crisis" Khalidi clearly illustrates the way in which these two "battles" are connected.

Really interesting read.

Rashid Khalidi is the Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Colombia University.
