FROM GAZA TO ISIS/Dr. Steven Z. Freiberger

This list has been updated on December 24, 2016.  It includes the latest books published in 2016 that I believe are important and members of the new Trump administration should consult.  Further, it includes some older books that I left of the previous versions of the list.
