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 U.S.-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 U.S.-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. Although I don’t always agree with my former student, Elliott Abrams, I always learn from him and am proud to have been one of his teachers. This book really matters.” – Alan M. Dershowitz, Harvard Law School, Author of Trials of Zion (2010)
“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
