Inside the mirage : America's fragile partnership with Saudi Arabia by Thomas W Lippman( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 1,776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia has always been a marriage of convenience, not affection. In 1945, in a bargain cemented by President Roosevelt and King Abdul Aziz, Saudi Arabia's founding king, Americans gained access to Saudi oil, and the Saudis sent the dollars back with purchases of American planes, American weapons, American construction projects, and American know-how that brought them modernization, education, and security. The marriage has suited both sides. But how long can it last?"

Hero of the Crossing : How Anwar Sadat and the 1973 War Changed the World by Thomas W Lippman( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In eleven dramatic years, Anwar Sadat changed history--not just that of Egypt, or of the Middle East, but of the entire world. As the architect of the 1973 war against Israel, he gained the support of other Arab nations and inspired the oil embargo that transformed the global economy. Following the war, however, he forever ended Arab aspirations of unity by making peace with Israel. Early in his presidency, Sadat jettisoned Egypt's alliance with the Soviet Union and turned to the United States, thereby giving the West a crucial Cold War victory. Sadat's historic tenure still resonates in the twenty-first century as the Islamic activists--whom he originally encouraged but who opposed his conciliatory policy toward Israel and ultimately played a role in his assassination--continue to foster activism, including the Muslim Brotherhood, today. Thomas W. Lippman was stationed in the Middle East as a journalist during Sadat's presidency and lived in Egypt in the aftermath of the October War. He knew Sadat personally, but only now, after the passage of time and the long-delayed release of the U.S. State Department's diplomatic files, can Lippman assess the full consequences of Sadat's presidency. Hero of the Crossing provides an eye-opening account of the profound reverberations of one leader's political, cultural, and economic maneuverings and legacy"--

Saudi Arabia on the edge : the uncertain future of an American ally by Thomas W Lippman( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all the countries in the world that are vital to the strategic and economic interests of the United States, Saudi Arabia is the least understood by the American people. Saudi Arabia's unique place in Islam makes it indispensable to a constructive relationship between the non-Muslim West and the Muslim world. For all its wealth, the country faces daunting challenges that it lacks the tools to meet: a restless and young population, a new generation of educated women demanding opportunities in a closed society, political stagnation under an octogenarian leadership, religious extremism and intellectual backwardness, social division, chronic unemployment, shortages of food and water, and troublesome neighbors. Today's Saudi people, far better informed than all previous generations, are looking for new political institutions that will enable them to be heard, but these aspirations conflict with the kingdom's strict traditions and with the House of Saud's determination to retain all true power. Meanwhile, the country wishes to remain under the protection of American security but still clings to a system that is antithetical to American values. Basing his work on extensive interviews and field research conducted in the kingdom from 2008 through 2011 under the auspices of the Council on Foreign Relations, Thomas W. Lippman dissects this central Saudi paradox for American readers, including diplomats, policymakers, scholars, and students of foreign policy

Arabian knight : Colonel Bill Eddy USMC and the rise of American power in the Middle East by Thomas W Lippman( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bill Eddy knew the Arabs and the Middle East better than any other American of the 20th century, and the work of his eventful life helped to establish the United States as the dominant strategic power in the region. Born in Lebanon, he spoke Arabic like a native. He was a Marine Corps hero of World War I, a prominent scholar of classical English literature, a brilliant spymaster in North Africa during the Allied landings there in World War II, and a major player in the Washington power games that led to the creation of the CIA. He was the impresario of President Franklin Roosevelt's landmark meeting with King Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia in 1945, and his work as the senior U.S. diplomat in Jeddah cemented the improbable alliance of the United States and the desert kingdom. To know his story is to understand why the United States today is an indispensable force in the Arab world--for better or worse. -- Jacket flap
