This book dispels two common myths about the US-Israeli patron-client relationship: that arms transfers to Israel have been motivated by US domestic politics rather than national interests, and that these arms transfers have come without any political strings attached to them. The first part of the book describes and analyzes the institutionalization of the US-Israeli arms pipeline during the Johnson administration, demonstrating conclusively in the process that arms transfers to the Jewish state were based primarily on US national interests. The second part of the book consists of four case studies that clearly reveal that US arms transfers to Israel, whether in wartime or in peacetime, have always come with a diplomatic price tag attached to them. The book is based largely on US government documents from the Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) series, from the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library, and from the US National Archives.

A model of policy analysis, Arms Transfers under Nixon provides a lucid and lively demonstration of how the Nixon administration combined skillful diplomacy and the adroit use of arms transfers to bring about a remarkable series of American foreign policy achievements. The Middle East provides the most dramatic example. Here, the Arab-Israeli military balance was stabilized, Egypt was persuaded and enabled to forsake its heavy dependence upon the Soviet Union, conditions favorable to peace negotiations were arranged, and important interim agreements were brokered by the United States.In the P.

This policy-relevant study of US Foreign policy, written in the light of September 11, examines US actions since the 1970s in the critical geographical arena of the Middle East. It argues that the more that the US has militarized the region, the less secure have the American people become. The US faces a stark contrast: to continue imposing a Pax Americana, or to promote real peace based on human rights, international law and sustainable development.

The study describes and analyzes the press's reaction to the events in the Middle East at critical stages of the evolving relationship within the context of the broader regional and international systems. These findings are crucial to understanding the attitudes toward Israel that prevailed in America during the period examined. The New York Times and The Washington Post were singled out because they are considered the most prestigious and influential papers both in the United States and abroad. In order to achieve a comprehensive evaluation of these papers' attitudes toward U.S. aid policy vis-a-vis Israel, every editorial and commentary that appeared in each paper during the entire period was examined.

Combined arms warfare (CAW) -- the integration of different arms on the battlefield (eg: armor, infantry, artillery, aircraft, and engineers) in order to achieve maximal efficiency there -- is as old as war itself. Every army across both time and space that has engaged in combat has practiced one version or another of CAW, whether consciously or otherwise. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has been no exception to the rule. This book traces the Israeli experience with CAW from the countrys War of Independence in 1947-49 (against a coalition of Arab states) through Operation Protective Edge in 2014 (against a coalition of Hamas-led terrorist/insurgent groups). It describes and analyzes the IDFs practice of CAW in each interstate war (IW), asymmetrical war (AW), and low-intensity conflict (LIC) that Israel has fought since the countrys establishment in the mid-twentieth century. The book also highlights the Israeli approach to CAW in respect of special operations (SPEC OPS). With no end in sight to the ArabIsraeli conflict, and with further hostilities between Israel and its neighbors virtually assured in the future, Combined Arms Warfare in Israeli Military History constitutes an essential addition to the literature about Middle Eastern warfare. This book is aimed primarily at the academic and research community, but it is fully accessible to anyone with an interest in Israeli military history.
