The Resistible Rise of Benjamin NetanyahuBook - 2016 | First U.S. edition.
One of the longest-serving Prime Ministers of Israel, Netanyahu has been at the very centre of Arab-Israeli politics since 1990, when he became the telegenic Israeli spokesman for CNN's coverage of the Persian Gulf War, arguably ushering in the Americanization of the Israeli media. Using the juncture of the Oslo Accords to take the reader back to Netanyahu's formative years, Lochery chronicles not only the Prime Minister's life but also the issues his career has encompassed, from the rise of militant Islam to the politics of oil, and the changing role of the U.S. in the Middle East.
