's review

Chapter 5, "The Weapondollar-Petrodollar Coalition," is absolutely stunning, a tour de force of applied political economy. Even those of us already inclined to view US foreign policy cynically, even committed anti-imperialists, will find they have yet more innocence to lose.

This chapter is actually more about Saudi Arabia and the GCC than it is about Israel. In the decade and a half since this book's publication, we have seen increasing convergence between the interests of the Gulf monarchs and the ethnostate. Area for further study.
