From "a research scholar with impeccable academic credentials . . . A complete, patient catalogue of the financial details of Saudi influence peddling" (National Review).

While critics claim that a nefarious Israel Lobby dictates U.S. policy in the Middle East, the Arab Lobby in this country is older, richer, and more powerful than the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). The Arab Lobby is the first book in more than 25 years to investigate the scope and activities of this diffuse yet powerful network. Author Mitchell Bard courageously explores the invisible alliance that threatens Israel and undermines America's interests in the Middle East.

"Illuminates the dark side of the massive and largely undemocratic Arab lobbying efforts to influence American policy with regard to the Middle East . . . A must-read." —Alan M. Dershowitz

"In a pointed response to John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt's equally scathing The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy (2007), Bard goes full throttle in pursuit of what he sees as a more insidious, if less vociferous behind-the-scenes lobby by the masters of Gulf oil and foes of Israel." —Kirkus Reviews

"A seriously and timely look at a powerful and remarkably under-studied influence on U.S. foreign policy." —Tablet

"Extraordinarily well-researched . . . Bard has performed a valuable service with his book, which will be eye-opening to many, even among friends of Israel, who are not aware just how deep and long-lived is the historical animus not only to the actions of the Jewish state itself but also to the very idea of a Jewish state at all." —Commentary
