Críticas:

""Genesis", John Judis's history of the Truman administration's relationship to Israel and its neighbors, is a smart, unsentimental, and independent-minded rendering of a complicated tale. His arguments and evidence challenge the comforting myths that sustain all sides of this tragic conflict and, in doing so, have the potential to point all its actors in a more hopeful direction in the future." --Eric Alterman, author of "The Cause: The Fight for American Liberalism from Franklin Roosevelt to Barack Obama"

"This is the best kind of history--taking a historical episode we think we know about (Truman recognizing the new state of Israel) and probing what really happened and what it meant for the future.

Reseña del editor:

A probing look at one of the most incendiary subjects of our time the relationship between the United States and Israel
There has been more than half a century of raging conflict between Jews and Arabs a violent, costly struggle that has had catastrophic repercussions in a critical region of the world. In "Genesis," John B. Judis argues that, while Israelis and Palestinians must shoulder much of the blame, the United States has been the principal power outside the region since the end of World War II and as such must account for its repeated failed diplomacy efforts to resolve this enduring strife.

The fatal flaw in American policy, Judis shows, can be traced back to the Truman years. What happened between 1945 and 1949 sealed the fate of the Middle East for the remainder of the century. As a result, understanding that period holds the key to explaining almost everything that follows right down to George W. Bush's unsuccessful and ill-conceived effort to win peace through holding elections among the Palestinians, and Barack Obama's failed attempt to bring both parties to the negotiating table. A provocative narrative history animated by a strong analytical and moral perspective, and peopled by colorful and outsized personalities and politics, "Genesis" offers a fresh look at these critical postwar years, arguing that if we can understand how this stalemate originated, we will be better positioned to help end it."
