Yasir Arafat by Barry Rubin
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Generations of politicians have come and gone but Arafat has outlasted them all. He has always survived but he has never achieved his goals. This biography which covers the main events and dominant leaders of the Middle East, is a detailed and analytical account that follows Arafat as he moves to Kuwait, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia and finally to Palestine ruled soil. It shows him as he rewrites his own origins, exeriments with guerrilla war, develops a doctrine of terrorism and builds a movement, constantly juggling states, factions and world leaders. While there has been no substitute for Arafat, the authors conclude, Arafat has been no substitute for a leader who could make peace.
