"Middle East Focus"
As Israel continues to struggle for survival in the hostile political environment of the Middle East, it is increasingly threatened from within by deep divisions on key foreign policy issues, particularly relations with the Arab world and the crisis in Lebanon. This book focuses on Israel's foreign policy conflicts and examines the perspectives of the competing factions, parties, and alignments that are in conflict over these vital issues. Written by a group of specialists with in-depth knowledge of Israeli government and political life, it provides a clear analysis and composite picture of the forces and actors that have shaped Israel's national security policy in recent decades.
