Reviews

Thomas E. Donilon, the national security advisor, remarked that what surprised him the most about Obama in office was: "He's a president who is quite comfortable with the use of force on behalf of the United States."
-- from "Killing Machine"

Praise for The Road to Tahrir Square:

Chronicles the U.S. and Egypt's twentieth-century entanglements with concision and clarity...thought-provoking.
-- "Publishers Weekly"

A clear, concise, and insightful account of Egypt's long decline, focusing on both the mistakes of its own leaders and the ignorant meddling of outside powers.
-- Stephen Kinzer, author of "Overthrow"
"Gardner delivers an engrossing blow-by-blow account of a decade of fierce debates and painful events that offer excruciating parallels with the Vietnam War."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
