The Arab Lobby and US Foreign Policy

Product Description

The US foreign policy stance on Israel-Palestine has shifted considerably in recent years, from a position of “Israel only” to one which embraces both Israel and Palestine in a call for peace. This volume assesses why the US stance has evolved in the way that it has, concluding that while international factors cannot be overlooked, developments within the United States itself are also crucial.

 

After years of vacillating on Palestinian national aspirations, the majority of Americans, the author notes, have come to favor the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the West Bank and the Gaza strip. Considering what accounts for changes in US policy on Israel-Palestine, this volume:

 

  • delivers a thorough assessment of the role of international and domestic factors in shaping US policy in this area
  • considers how US policy has evolved from the Camp David negotiations of the 1970s up to the occupation of Iraq in the mid 2000s
  • explores the significance of American public opinion and the pro-Israel and Arab lobbies in the evolution of US policy

 

The Arab Lobby and US Foreign Policy will be of interest to students and scholars of Foreign Policy and Political Science, Current Affairs and American Studies.

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.
