Aburish shows how, before he became corrupted by power, Arafat was a heroic freedom fighter who kept the hopes of his people alive.
Now he is out of touch with reality, and his personal ambitions and rejection of democratic principles have reduced him to the status of just another middle eastern dictator. Originally published in 1998.
