Fault Lines is written for those interested in understanding the often convoluted history of American Middle East policy by a non- academic former businessman and consultant, widely traveled in the Middle East. The book explains the fault lines that have often plagued U.S. efforts to protect its national interests in the region and how these on-going faults have led to a precipitous decline in American influence. The author makes some recommendations as to how this decline can be reversed.

“After a successful career in domestic business, Don Liebich turned his talents to foreign affairs, serving as an unpaid international consultant and developing deep expertise, especially in the problems of the Middle East.  He has shared his knowledge and policy perspectives through publications, blogs, oral presentations, and the leadership of study tours.”
