Summary, etc. note: “Best of Enemies is surely destined to stand alongside Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis as a graphic history of the Middle East. A must read for anyone interested in learning, or teaching, about the region.”—Mark Levine, professor of history at UC-Irvine and author of Heavy Metal Islam It was an American who first described the 'Barbary' lands of the Mediterranean basin as 'the Middle East' – a region by which America, ever since its own revolutionary foundation, has always measured its power. Acclaimed historian Jean-Pierre Filiu and award-winning artist David B. here tell the story of the blockades, broadsides and betrayals of this foreign affair – a wary co-dependency that, from the Epic of Gilgamesh to the Eisenhower era, and from gold to oil, has continued to define our modern world.
Expansion of summary note: France, history, USA, United States, Middle East, politics, oil, Eisenhower, United States, late 1700s, 1900s, Epic of Gilgamesh, American politics
