A New Biography of Mahmoud Abbas

The Last Palestinian: The Rise and Reign of Mahmoud AbbasRead my review of a new profile by of Mahmoud Abbas by Grant Rumley and Amir Tibon in the Washington Independent Review of Books.

Abbas succeeded Yasser Arafat and since 2005 has been president of the Palestinian National Authority. This review of Abbas’ life succeeds at being brisk and objective, but steers clear of some of the complex dynamics between Israel and the Palestinians that a more comprehensive biography would have explored.
