Great Wall by Patrick Tyler

Book Description

Hailed as "absorbing" by the New York Times and "suspense-filled" by Foreign Affairs, Patrick Tyler's A Great Wall became an instant classic; a must-read for anyone concerned with the complicated and combative relationship between the world's biggest and the world's most powerful nations. And no one could tell this story better than Patrick Tyler, veteran journalist and former Beijing bureau chief of the New York Times. Using brilliant original reporting from his years in China; interviews with presidents, secretaries of state, Chinese officials, and other key leaders; and 15,000 pages of newly declassified documents, Tyler illuminates a relationship usually shrouded in secrecy, miscommunication, rivalry, fascination, and fear. A Great Wall is essential reading for anyone interested in China and anyone concerned with the shifting dynamics of post-Cold War geopolitics.

Fortress Israel by Patrick Tyler Fortress Israel, Paperback (October 2013)

Offers an epic portrayal of Israel's martial culture - of Sparta presenting itself as Athens. From Israel's founding in 1948, this book shows a leadership class engaged in an ideological struggle over whether to become the "light unto nations," as envisioned by the early Zionists, or to embrace an ideology of state militarism.

World of Trouble by Patrick Tyler World of Trouble, Paperback / softback (February 2010)

Tyler draws on newly opened presidential archives to dramatize the approach to the Middle East across U.S. presidencies from Eisenhower to George W. Bush, showing how each president has managed to undo the policies of his predecessor, often provoking anger against America.
