9780985437893: Spies Against Armageddon: Inside Israel's Secret Wars

Fully updated for 2014 to include tumultuous events in Syria, Egypt, Iran, and the entire Middle East, SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON: INSIDE ISRAEL'S SECRET WARS covers more ground than any other book about modern-day Israel. Its 25 action-packed chapters and detailed endnotes are filled with colorful characters, who risk their lives and reputations in the secret service of their nation. This is a history of Israel's espionage and security network from 1948 until the present day, written by the best selling authors of EVERY SPY A PRINCE. This book takes you inside the Middle East crises of today, analyzing Iran's nuclear program and challenges for the United States. The award-winning historian Douglas Brinkley writes: “The revelatory research amassed in SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON is nothing short of stunning. Raviv and Melman understand the inner workings of Israel’s Mossad better than most Mossad agents. Highly recommended!” James Roche, a former Secretary of the Air Force, writes: "Fascinating vignettes ... a detailed exposition of the activities of serious, professional, and generally successful Israeli operatives who are dedicated totally to the defense of Israel and the Jewish people." Bob Schieffer, host of CBS's Face the Nation, says this book is "wonderful, with great sourcing -- reads like a thriller." Chapter 1 is titled "Stopping Iran," then come chapters with exclusive and carefully considered history -- showing how the behavior and lessons learned in wars and adventures affect the decisions Israel must make today. Later chapters focus on the secret bombing of a nuclear reactor in Syria, the murder by a Mossad team in a Dubai hotel (Was it a mistake?), and blasting the Steven Spielberg movie "Munich" for making it look like Mossad hit men suffered frustration and regrets. SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON is well researched, balanced, and a remarkably enjoyable read. Editorial Reviews Review Best-selling spy novelist Daniel Silva writes: "Buyer beware: Once you crack the cover of Spies Against Armageddon, you won't be able to put it down. It is much more than simply the most authoritative book ever written about Israeli intelligence. It is storytelling and drama of the highest order." --Advance Praise R. James Woolsey, former Director of Central Intelligence, writes: Raviv and Melman have redefined the gold standard for nonfiction about intelligence. This remarkable history of Israeli intelligence from the War of Independence to Stuxnet calls it straight. By describing the roots of both the triumphs and the screw-ups thoroughly and fairly the authors help us see not only how Israel's survival has been effectively protected but the huge debt the rest of us owe. --Advance Praise Wolf Blitzer, the CNN anchor, writes: "These two world-class journalists take us to places we've never been before. They back up their points with tons of excellent research and reporting. They clearly know their stuff. I learned so much reading this book. I know you will, as well." --Advance Praise
