Default Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Following up, Friedman annoys me as much as anyone, but I checked From Beirut to Jerusalem, which was a book I liked a lot in the late 90s, and -- despite being written in '89, with a chapter added in '95 to address the young Clinton admin -- it has what struck me at the time and still strikes me as a good discussion of why the US's Israeli policy and reaction to Israel news is what it is. Much better than M&W, without even attempting to be a scholarly study. I continue to think -- strongly -- that things have changed in the US since 9/11, but that Friedman is willing to discuss this stuff and how he does is worth considering. 9/11 rather obviously had an effect on his views for a while too.
