The husband-and-wife team, Janet and John Wallach, discussed their book about the controversial leader of the Palestine Liberation Movement (PLO), Yasser Arafat. Entitled, Arafat: In the Eyes of the Beholder, the work details the life and political struggles of this important political leader. The Wallachs were able to spend hundreds of hours with Mr. Arafat and his entourage at the PLO’s headquarters, thus providing a balance between the less personable side of Mr. Arafat and his substantial influence over the tenuous relationships between Palestinian factions. The book also focuses on Mr. Arafat as discussed by Jordan’s King Hussein, Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, Israel’s Yitzhak Shamir, as well as important American, Syrian and Iraqi policymakers. close
