Morris West's seventh novel is a story of Middle Eastern intrigue and espionage paralleling in all its sinuousness the crisis events of early 1967. The rather mechanical plot, carefully worked out in most respects (there are occasional slips) is concerned with the interlocking fates of several diverse characters who serve as mouthpieces for varying points of view. What can be said about a Morris West novel grooved almost by virtue of its timing alone towards bestsellerdom? Easy to read, easy to forget. Written to formula, devoid of inspiration. Coated over with a shopworn eloquence which only serves to undermine the author's long-standing and convincing moral concerns.

Published 1982 by Bantam Books About the Book. In the complex world of Middle Eastern politics not everyone is what he seems. In the cause of freedom no cost is considered too high. One terrorist is a statesman, the other is a criminal and a game of cat-and-mouse is played out in an explosive world.

"The Tower of Babel is an outstanding achievement by one of the great best-selling novelists of our time. Set in the Middle East, on the very brink of war, it portrays the Arab-Jewish confrontation with a sense of political reality that is both profound and startling. "It is a measure of Morris West's power of understanding that in the age of the anti-hero he has written a novel in which every character can be termed a hero" (from book's dust jacket)
Reviews (6)
If this is your first read of any of Morris West's works you may have made a mistaken choice. West's awesome insights, from a unique perch and an extraordinary frame of reference into the horrific complexities of the Mideast way back before the so-called ISIS conundrum should embarrass the US State Department inept understanding of the profound historical factors fashioning today's knee-jerk policy regarding the five hundred year miasma of tribe-to-tribe antagonisms, the reading will be an intense jolt.
West brings a profundity of insight that could probably turnoff today's "quick and dirty" genre readers, but might just snare those readers seeking something of substance, interest and relevance.
West's works ought to be "required reading" for all US State Department employees, especially those missioned to develop "policy" regarding those too many areas on our planet about which we know little or nothing of the harsh realities that "policy" afflicts with horrendous consequences.
This book is an infectious moral challenge, and many will put it down, rather than face those challenges. Which is not bad, just real. The depicted realities of the moral quandaries portrayed by West can only make a serious reader uncomfortable- but insightfully informed. And that alone is is worth the reading experience.

An older story by a masterful writer. And it is timely, being set in the middle east.

All of this man's books are very good and some of them keepers to read again and again through the years.

I have read this book three times sofar.

Morris West was/is the best storyteller I ever read. Read many of his books.

Wonderful story extremely well written

I came across this book randomly, and loved it. Having taken a course on Middle Eastern history and one on borders, I felt like this book supplemented everything I had read about, and more: it provided me with the human dimension of more broader policies and events of the region. Well-balanced, informative and interesting, takes place on the eve of the 1967 war. It examines the same events through the eyes of different characters: an Israeli spy living in Syria, a Palestinian terrorist, a Lebanese banker and an Israeli military adviser. Wonderfully written.
