A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR

A WASHINGTON POST BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR

'Few American journalists are a s familiar with the Middle East as Robin Wright . . . An engaging tour of a complex area.' -Ethan Bronner, The New York Times

The transformation of the Middle East is an issue that will absorb—and challenge—the world for generations to come. Dreams and Shadows is the book to read to understand it. Award-winning journalist and Middle East expert Robin Wright draws on thirty-five years of reporting in two dozen countries—through wars, revolutions, and uprisings as well as the birth of new democracy movements and a new generation of activists—to provide a tour d'horizon of what lies ahead in one of the world's most confronting areas. Based on firsthand interviews, the book is animated by the characters-from the region's most important leaders to political prisoners and street protestors-whose stories give change in the region a human dimension and urgency.

'If there is such a thing as a pinnacle in the landscape of international journalism, Robin Wright surely stands atop it. [Wright] recounts her impressions with wisdom, clarity, and a sharp critical eye.' - The New York Review of Books

'A thought-provoking and eminently readable look at the current and future generation of leaders in that important, politically troubled region . . . Wright's skills at old-fashioned shoe-leather reporting are very much in evidence.' - The Boston Globe
