“Tom Lippman has provided the foundation for understanding what is happening [in the Middle East] today from the rise of ISIS to the collapse of the Arab Spring. And as an added benefit it is a good read for expert and novice alike.”—Edward S. Walker, former U.S. ambassador to Egypt, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates
Thomas Lippman was a featured speaker at WACA’s 2015 National Conference. He is an adjunct scholar at the Middle East Institute, specializing in Saudi Arabian affairs, U.S.- Saudi relations, and relations between the West and Islam.
