"A revelatory popular history that tells the story of the Suez Crisis and the Hungarian Revolution of 1956--a tale of conspiracy and revolutions, spies and terrorists, kidnappings and assassination plots, the fall of the British Empire and the rise of American hegemony under the heroic leadership of President Dwight D. Eisenhower--which shaped the Middle East and Europe we know today"--From dust jacket
Summary
Describes the twin crises in 1956 involving Suez and Hungary that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war and discusses both events in the context of the resulting global Cold War, the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict and the dangerous politics of oil
