Best of Enemies Vol. 1: A History of US and Middle East Relations (1783-1953)

It was an American who first described the 'Barbary' lands of the Mediterranean basin as 'the Middle East' – a region by which America, ever since its own revolutionary foundation, has always measured its power.   Acclaimed historian Jean-Pierre Filiu and award-winning artist David B. here tell the story of the blockades, broadsides and betrayals of this foreign affair – a wary co-dependency that, from the Epic of Gilgamesh to the Eisenhower era, and from gold to oil, has continued to define our modern world.
