About this Item

328, maps, selected bibliography, index, publisher's ephemera laid in. This is an exploration of what has conditioned the Jewish state to turn its back on a negotiated peace: the influence of historic anti-Semitism and the Holocaust; the deep-seated conflicts between Revisionist and Mainstream Zionism, and religious and secular Judaism; and the collaboration between Israel and the United States.

About this title


Traces the history of Israel and its relations with its Arab neighbors, examines American policy concerning the region, and discusses the advantages of a negotiated peace

From Library Journal:

Experienced journalist Viorst looks at Israel's 40 years of development, and finds that the tiny country's increasing military strength, marked by major victories against its Arab neighbors, has brought instability, not security. While military might favored Israel, she abandoned a rational approach to regional stability in favor of a rising ideology and zealotry. Viorst believes that since 1967 the Arabs have come to accept Israel's presence, and would be willing to live in peace. He argues that Israeli intransigence, supported by American Cold War strategy, is responsible for continuing tension and hostility. This analysis is presented dramatically and convincingly in the first chapter, and supported in chapters describing the military and diplomatic events of the last decades. Elizabeth R. Hayford, President, Associated Colleges of the Midwest, Chicago
