'Elliott Abrams played a major role in the development of Mid-East policy during the Bush administration. He has written an excellent account that will be an invaluable source for future historians and for all who want to understand one of the most important chapters of that era.' Richard B. Cheney, Former Vice President of the United States
'Elliott Abrams was at the epicenter of President Bush's commitment to forge a sustainable solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Tested by Zion, Abrams's fascinating new book, takes the reader inside the debates that took place in the Oval Office with the president and his senior advisors on Middle East peace.' Dr Henry Kissinger, Former United States Secretary of State
'Elliott Abrams has written the definitive insider account of the US-Israeli relationship during the critical years under President George W. Bush. This fascinating, important book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the future of Israel, the US-Israeli relationship, and the prospects for peace in the Middle East.' Joseph I. Lieberman, United States Senator (Independent - Connecticut)
'Abrams's riveting insider account of the Bush administration's policies and actions with regard to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a must-read. Chock-full of details that are relevant not only to historians but to future policy makers, Tested by Zion is accessible, readable, and brilliantly presented … This book really matters.' Alan M. Dershowitz, Harvard Law School and author of Trials of Zion (2010)
'Mr Abrams's book is the definitive history of the last Republican president's considerable accomplishments in the Levant.' Wall Street Journal
'… [a] detailed, frank, and perceptive account of the George W. Bush administration's involvement in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.' Nathan Thrall, New York Review of Books
'Elliott Abrams has written an excellent book on a hitherto neglected aspect of Bush administration foreign policy. Meticulous and yet gripping, Tested by Zion weighs the opportunities for diplomacy against its limitations more convincingly than any other account I've seen of the recent Israeli-Palestinian relationship. Highly recommended.' John Lewis Gaddis, Yale University
'The book is not only a fascinating yarn for those of us who report on or follow closely the Middle East but also a tour de force of diplomatic history which captures an era and set of characters like few books have done.' Jennifer Rubin, The Washington Post
'Israelis, Americans, and others who read Tested by Zion will gain important insights not only into the history and nature of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but also the inner workings of American foreign policy.' Itamar Rabinovich, Jewish Review of Books
'… represents the single most cogent statement of the neoconservative analysis of the Arab-Israeli conflict.' Michael Doran, The Weekly Standard
'… Tested by Zion will be catnip for anyone interested in diplomatic history or the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Abrams's account of the difficult choices faced by the administration - and the policy decisions it made - will fuel endless debate for generations of students studying international affairs.' Glenn Kessler, The Washington Post
'From his experience as a senior adviser on the US National Security Council, Abrams provides an intelligent and astonishingly detailed chronicle of the George W. Bush administration's failed attempts at solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.' John Waterbury, Foreign Affairs
