Hero of the Crossing - How Anwar Sadat and the 1973 War Changed the World

Thomas W. Lippman is a journalist specializing in Middle Eastern affairs and American foreign policy. He is a former Middle East bureau chief for the Washington Post, as well as the author of numerous magazine articles and books. Lippman's latest book, Hero of the Crossing - How Anwar Sadat and the 1973 War Changed the World, provides an eye-opening account of the profound reverberations of one leader's political, cultural, and economic maneuverings and legacy. 

"Tom Lippman has provided the foundation for understanding what is happening [in the Middle East] today from the rise of ISIS to the collapse of the Arab Spring. And as an added benefit it is a good read for expert and novice alike."

--Edward S. Walker, former U.S. ambassador to Egypt, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates

"Lippman, a great storyteller and analyst of modern Middle Eastern politics and history, is able to explain Sadat the man: his motives, contradictory character, and political metamorphosis. Through extensive research and personal observation, Lippman provides a compelling narrative about how the 'Hero of the Crossing' changed the trajectory of the modern Middle East and global politics."

--David Dumke, director of the Prince Mohammad bin Fahd Program for Strategic Research and Studies at the University of Central Florida.
