Books on Gaza

As mentioned in an earlier post, the current issue of Newsweek lists “three excellent books” on the Mideast. In his column in today’s  New York Times, Thomas Friedman quotes the author of one of those titles, former Clinton Middle East adviser Martin Indyk,

This tiny little piece of land, Gaza, has the potential to blow all of these issues wide open and present a huge problem for Barack Obama on Day 1.

Friedman also refers to Indyk’s new book, Innocent Abroad: An Intimate Account of American Diplomacy in the Middle East, and calls it “incisive.”

In today’s Philadelphia Inquirer book critic, Carlin Romano recommends Robert Zelnick’s Israel’s Unilateralism (2006), now available in paperback, as “Easily the clearest book available for background narrative and analytic cogency.” Zelnick was an ABC News correspondent.

None of the large libraries I check own it.
