By James Petras

“Once again James Petras takes us on a fearless truth trip—with lucid style, tough factual blows, commanding research, and compelling analysis. This is an eye-opening, must-read book for every advocate of democracy.”
—Michael Parenti,  author of The Culture Struggle and Superpatriotism
“Jim Petras has been one of the few courageous individuals, in or outside of academia, to take a critical view of the pro-
Israel lobby and its influence over US Middle East policy and to challenge the “conventional wisdom” on the part of the Left that Israel acts as a “cop on the beat” and is simply serving America’s imperial interests.”
—Jeff Blankfort A leading Jewish authority in the US on the pro-Israel Lobby
“Jim Petras is one of the best informed political scientists of his generation, not given to avoiding difficult issues. Here he addresses one such, which he tackles in a characteristically challenging way.”
Tom Brass, Editor The Journal of Peasant Studies
“A breath of fresh air. This critique has to be internalised if the Left wills to regain its place in society.”
Israel Shamir, Jaffa Leading Russian-Israeli intellectual writer, translator and journalist
“A provocative analysis of a serious problem that should be discussed and debated widely… this book succeeds in exposing in great detail the enormous power and influence of Israel and the Jewish Lobby in shaping U.S. policy toward the Middle East.”
Berch Berberoglu, Ph.D. University of Nevada, Reno Author of Turmol in the Middle East
