About the Author

Kathleen Christison, a freelance writer and former CIA analyst, has written on Middle East affairs for over twenty-five years. She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.


"Breaks new ground through the sheer scope of its analysis, tracing 130 years of formulation of American perceptions of the Middle East and their ultimate manifestation in U.S. government policy. It is unhesitatingly recommended, as a standard text, to anyone wishing to better understand the conflict." - Nigel Parry, Middle East International "There is no shrewder observer of the American-Palestinian-Israeli triangle. Christison has written a masterful treatise on how it is that the United States managed to ignore the Palestinians for a century." - Donald Neff, Journal of Palestine Studies "After reading this book, it will be impossible not to wince the next time a representative of the U.S. government describes America as an honest broker." - Lawrence Davidson, Middle East Journal
