When writing a book, an author often has the sensation of being surrounded by that topic. In the case of anti-Americanism that experience was particularly strong. As the 21st century began it seemed as if the amount of criticism the United States was receiving around the world was matched only by the quantity of passionate debate about why this was happening.

This author subscribes to the principle of check and balance in all human enterprises and endeavours to mitigate the effects of human sin.

A stock figure of modern political literature is the Latin American dictator, a beribboned generalissimo, overweight, corrupt, propping up rich landlords who live in luxury on the back of impoverished peasants, using the language of anti-Communism to justify crushing any possibility of reform.

This is the story of Istanbul--but also of Turkey, the Balkans, and the eastern Mediterranean--during World War II, based on extensive interviews and the use of archives, especially those of the OSS, which I was the first to see for this region.

This book foresaw the “Arab Spring” of 2011. It was obvious years before that the old Arab nationalist dictatorships had failed and were being challenged by two forces: liberal democracy advocates and revolutionary Islamists. While the Long War for Freedom focuses on the moderates, it also, by necessity, presents the worldview and strategy of the Islamists.
