As Poignant as Ever
In light of recent "diplomatic" activity, Mr. Teslik's magnum opus on the 1945 Arab Boycott of Israel is a must-read. Even a cursory understanding of today's world--a world in which vigilantism pervades, civility and discourse give way to fear and superstition, and structural marvels of modern technology fall from the skies they once scraped--requires grounding in the rudiments of historical Arab/Israeli/American relations. Mr. Teslik's is the book for the occasion. Never have I seen an author so deftly navigate the morass of foreign policy decisions that followed the fateful boycott. While I will not go so far as to say that Mr. Teslik's work provides a comprehensive understanding of modern diplomacy--if such a work exists anywhere, I fear I have yet to indulge in its wisdom--I can unreservedly recommend the work as a valuable piece of the puzzle.

Finely Done
Before reading this book, I knew very little about the Arab boycott of Israel. This fine work made my learning process most enjoyable. Mr. Teslik concisely covers all critical features of this turbulent historical period, from the international backdrop and the political pressures that incited the boycott, to the political ramifications in Israel, the Middle East, and the United States. I would seriously recommend this book to anyone interested in the on-going conflict in the Middle East, or more generally in international relations. Congratulations, Mr. Teslik, and thank you for this most rewarding experience.

Better than Impressive
What was seemingly a dry and re-hashed subject has been revitalized by Mr. Teslik. Providing brilliant insight to the framework of our country's foreign policy, Teslik gives a revolutionary perspective on the Arab boycott of Israel. We could have gotten minced meat but he gave us filet mignon. I have grown to value the viewpoints of distinguished writers over the years as a discriminatory reader. Even though this is the first work I have read by Kennan Lee Teslik, I extend an enthusiastic applause to his efforts. Kudos.
