Praise

“Kirk Beattie’s Congress and the Shaping of the Middle East is a stunning achievement.  His extensive in-depth interviews and careful empirical analysis offer a convincing portrait of how various special interest groups operate on Capitol Hill, and Beattie shows exactly why the influence of the ‘Israel lobby’ is so persistent there.  Anyone who wants to understand why US Middle East policy stumbles so often should read this thoughtful, compelling, and well-researched book.”
—Stephen Walt, coauthor of The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy

“Kirk Beattie is among the first to conduct systematic research on the role of the legislative branch in US foreign policy, and on the impact of the Israel lobbies. Specialists have theorized on this issue, but Beattie’s careful fieldwork delivers the goods.”
—Juan Cole, author of The New Arabs: How the Millennial Generation Is Changing the Middle East and former president of the Middle East Studies Association
