Focusing on the different dimensions to the war in Iraq, these essays present concise and penetrating analyses and explore the major implications of the war and their strategic, political, and military contexts. Researchers from the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University have brought their expertise in international relations, political science, strategic studies, political psychology, and more to create a thoughtful, comprehensive analysis. Their vast experience in the military, government, and academic allows for a thorough analysis of questions such as Is United States unilateralism successful foreign policy? Has the Iraq war contributed to the war on terror? Can states be democratized if their regimes are deposed from the outside? Have Israel’s security threats changed in the aftermath of the war? and How did the Pentagon’s media policy reflect the strong significance attributed to military-media relations? The book also contains a chronology surveying the International Inspection Regime in Iraq from 1991 to 2003 and the full text of the National Security Strategy of the United States of America, which should be regarded as the basis of the Bush administration’s strategic rationale for the war in Iraq.
