    When Woodrow Wilson included Arab self-determination in his template for a new world after the First World War, many in the Middle East saw the United States as a beacon of hope. Today, mutual distrust could not run deeper. This riveting, detailed and nuanced account of US-Arab relations since the 19th century unearths a forgotten history of lost opportunities, and demonstrates how the establishment of the state of Israel, the Cold War, and the oil crisis soured a once-promising relationship.
