Fateful Triangle may be the most ambitious book ever attempted on the conflict between Zionism and the Palestinians viewed as centrally involving the United States. It is a dogged expose of human corruption, greed, and intellectual dishonesty. It is also a great and important book, which must be read by anyone concerned with public affairs.

– Edward W. Said, from the Foreword

A devastating collection of charges aimed at Israeli and American policies that affect the Palestinian Arabs negatively.

Library Journal
