This book is a worthwhile study of the time when Nasser's ideal of Arab independence from European neo-colonialism was riding high, when it could rouse entire populations behind any governments that claimed (or really did) to stand for it. It had a lot to do with the ideals behind the non-Aligned movement, established at the Bandung conference of 1955, Nasser and Tito its best known proponents. But the book also deals with the sad unraveling of it all, when the victories of Israel over the UAR pushed them further into the Soviets' arms, making them dependent on Soviet military and economic aid, as they saw Israel getting closer to the US, and itself become dependent on US military aid. In other words, the CW did away with any hopes of real sovereignty in the region, and even to this day most countries there need the US or Russia for the survival of their regimes and in some cases the defense of their territory.
