9781903900758: After the War in Iraq: Defining the New Strategic Balance

In the immediate aftermath of the war in Iraq, certain basic implications for the region are already apparent, though their intensity will become clear only in the future. The fall of Saddam's regime and Iraq's strategic decline have significantly weakened the group of radical countries in the Middle East and are likely to buttress the region's moderate states. Iraq has been stripped of its military power, including conventional and WMD capabilities, which not only limits the threat Iraq poses to the region, but may also slow down the Middle East arms race. The Iraqi crisis has illustrated again the weakness of the Arab world and its inter-state schisms, while at the same time dramatically increasing United States involvement in the Middle East. These regional ramifications of the war in Iraq launched in March 2003 by the United States are among the many perspectives examined in After the War in Iraq: Defining the New Strategic Balance. Focusing on different perspectives of the war, the fourteen essays included in the volume present concise and penetrating analyses that explore the principal strategic, political, and military contexts of the war. Researchers from the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies of Tel Aviv University have brought their expertise in international relations, political science, military and strategic studies, political psychology, international finance, and more to create a thoughtful, comprehensive analysis. Their vast experience in the military, government, and academic world has added to the insightful picture presented in this rich collection of timely and provocative essays.

About the Author:

Shai Feldman is the Judith and Sidney Swartz Director of the Crown Center for Middle East Studies, a member of the board of directors of Harvard University’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, and a professor of politics at Brandeis University. He is the author of several books, including Israeli Nuclear Deterrence and Nuclear Weapons and Arms Control in the Middle East.

Review:

"A timely collection of essays generated by a series of brainstorming sessions at the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies on the implications of the war in Iraq as seen from various disciplinary angles. The collection is divided into two parts, the first deals with the international context, the second, the impact on the region, especially Israel." -- The International Spectator. "Included here are essays on regional implications of the war; the extent to which the war has affected the Israeli-Palestinian peace; weapons of mass destruction; how the war has affected the strategic balance in the region; and finally Israel's home front defense policy and implications for the future. An excellent book... Highly recommended." -- Choice
