Unprecedented in its use of Egyptian official sources, this book sheds new light on the difficulties and challenges of a nascent relationship characterized by missed opportunities, mixed messages, and mutual frustrations. Alterman compellingly shows how the interests of the U.S. and Egypt diverged to undermine this early American attempt at economic assistance for Egyptian development. He shows how the attempt was stymied by bureaucratic obstacles both in Egypt and the U.S. and how it became entangled in the politics of the Cold War and the Arab-Israeli conflict. This important book reveals the complexities of linking economic aid with political objectives.

About the Author:

Jon B. Alterman is a program officer at the U.S. Institute of Peace, and is a former member of the Policy Planning Staff at the U.S. Department of State.

Review:

"Alterman provides a valuable framework for improved understanding of the tradeoffs affecting American economic relations with the Third World..."--Bill S. Mikhail, kiplinger.com
"...a laudable attempt to describe Nasser's early relations with the United States from the bottom up..."--Tore Tingvold Peterson, International History Review
"The book is a significant contribution to the literature of American foreign relations and the flawed U.S.-Egyptian relationship."--Terri A. Thomas, H-Levant, H-Net Book Review
"...studies that treat the role of economic aid as an instrument of American foreign policy toward Egypt."--L. Carl Brown, Foreign Affairs, 3-4/01/03

This is an important book on a timely subject: missed messages and missed opportunities between the United States and the Arab world. Michael Doran, Princeton University

Book Description Palgrave USA, United States, 2002. Hardback. Condition: New. 2002 ed.. Language: English. Brand new Book. From the ground up the story of missed opportunities, mixed messages, and mutual frustrations in American relations with Egypt at a seminal time. Unprecedented in its drawing on Egyptian official sources, Hopes Dashed sheds new light on the difficulties and challenges of a nascent relationship characterized by missed opportunities, mixed messages, and mutual frustrations. However beneficial the intentions of those on the ground, their desire for Egyptian economic development was stymied by bureaucratic obstacles both in Egypt and the United States. And as Egypt became embroiled in the Cold War, policy decisions increasingly were made at higher levels by officials more concerned with geopolitical and Arab-Israeli issues and less how U.S. assistance could help the domestic political economy of Egypt. Alterman compellingly shows how the interests of both countries diverged to eventually undermine an early American attempt at economic assistance. Seller Inventory # APC9780312296216
