Best of Enemies
A History of US and Middle East Relations. Part One: 1783-1953Book - 2012
"Filiu and David B. draw striking parallels between ancient and contemporary political history in this look at the US-Mddle East conflict. The reader is transported to the pirate-choked Mediterranean sea, where Christians and Muslims continue the crusades, only this time on water. As the centuries pass, the traditional victims of the Muslim pirates-the British, French, and Spanish-all become empire-building powers whose sights lie beyond the Mediterranean. David B.'s rubbery, decoratively detailed images of historical figures suggest portraits from centuries-old pottery; his versions of Mohammed Mossadegh and Kermit Roosevelt seem to be players in an ancient legend."-New York Times.
