Arafat by Andrew Gowers
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


It is over thirty years since Yasser Arafat swept onto the world stage as leader of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, a machine gun in one hand and an olive branch in the other. During that time, until his death on 4 November 2004, he became many things to many people- to ordinary Israelis a terrorist godfather whose desire for the complete annihilation of their state was only thinly veiled; to previous US administrations a Nobel Peace Prize-winner and the only Palestinian to do business with; to the Bush Whitehouse a pariah once more.
