Book Endorsements:

“Whereas most students of U.S. Middle East policy see big shifts over time, Bledar Prifti argues there has actually been remarkable continuity. Geopolitics, which are at the heart of his story, leave American policy makers little choice but to concentrate on preventing the rise of a hegemon in that critically important region. This is a smart and interesting book that deserves to be widely read.” (John J. Mearsheimer, R. Wendell Harrison Distinguished Service Professor of Political Science, University of Chicago, USA)

“The book provides a comprehensive and balanced analysis of US policy toward the Middle East. It is one of the best in the field; and therefore a must read for anyone who is interested in understanding US policy in this important region of the world.” (George Klay Kieh, Jr., Professor of Political Science, University of West Georgia, USA)
