Welcome to the AFOPA Book Club.
This month's books:
This month is a non-fiction work, Against Our Better Judgement, a well-documented study of how American Zionists successfully lobbied professional politicians after WWII to overthrow agreed US policy in the Middle East in the interests of the creation and impunity of the State of Israel. The exercise is an historical model of elite political activism from which much can be learnt both positively and negatively. The book, of which we hold competitively priced stock obtained from the author not readily available elsewhere, will be considered in conjunction with The Israel Lobby, a contemporary 2006 study of the problem of the Zionist stranglehold on American Middle East policy.
Convenor: Dr David Faber, Adjunct Senior Lecturer, Flinders University, and AFOPA Executive member and historian.
