The Other Arab-Israeli Conflict: Making America’s Middle East Policy, from Truman to Reagan

Product Description

The Other Arab-Israeli Conflict illuminates the controversial course of America’s Middle East relations from the birth of Israel to the Reagan administration. Skillfully separating actual policymaking from the myths that have come to surround it, Spiegel challenges the belief that American policy in the Middle East is primarily a relation to events in that region or is motivated by bureaucratic constraints or the pressures of domestic politics. On the contrary, he finds that the ideas and skills of the president and his advisors are critical to the determination of American policy. This volume received the 1986 National Jewish Book Award.

Sand to Silicon: Achieving Rapid Growth Lessons from Dubai

Product Description
Over just three generations and within the past half century the tiny emirate of Dubai – which unlike many states in the region has not had the benefit of huge oil resources – has raised its profile globally through a range of bold developments and clever ideas. These include its free zones for business that have made it a regional centre for many firms, its biennial air show, the Dubai World Cup horse race, its development as a tourist centre that is home to some of the most stunning hotels in the world, the building of the Palm island and the planned construction of the world’s tallest building.

In Sand to Silicon Sampler and Saeb Eigner outline a model for how this large-scale rapid growth has been achieved and they pinpoint the reasons for Dubai’s success:

  • Leadership that is visionary, inspirational and embraces risks, that is demanding but supportive, and that builds confidence.
  • A leanness of organizational structure and bureaucracy, which helps to speed things up.
  • Openness to outside influence and competition, and to the views of all stakeholders.
  • Good communication channels and access to decisionmakers.
  • A business culture founded on trust – but not without regulation where it is necessary to reinforce trust and confidence in the system.

As Sampler and Eigner say in their concluding chapter, these are all things that any organization will benefit from.
