Advance Praise for False Dawn

“Steven Cook is one of Washington’s most astute and informed observers of the Middle East, and anyone wanting to understand how the region has ended up in its current unraveling state would do well to read his new book False Dawn. The backlash—and Western misreadings of it—are all too real, and Cook’s book is a major contribution in understanding what we got wrong.” — Susan Glasser, chief international affairs columnist, POLITICO; former editor-in-chief, Foreign Policy
