Bridging the Gap uses comparative politics literature to answer the international relations question of why states behave as they do and simultaneously provides an important foundation for further research in other critical areas of current scholarly interest, including democratization, consensus-building, multilateral institutions, and ethnic studies. This study proves to be indispensable to scholars in the international, comparative, and security fields and will also provide insights for Middle East regional experts and practitioners in the policy field.

Writing with unique insight and wide perspective, Jebb provides a detailed presentation of the 'how' and 'why' behind many of the events in parts of what has today become a geo-strategic battleground: the Arab world. This book is a must-read for scholars of U.S.-Arab politics as well as for decision makers concerned about the dynamics of U.S. foreign policy. -- Azza M. Karam Lucidly written, well researched, and theoretically framed, the book provides a penetrating insight into the complexities of Middle East politics and foreign relations and the challenges facing U.S. policy in the region. It is essential reading for scholars, policy makers, and students of the Middle East. -- Mahmud A. Faksh Bridging the Gap is a useful and interesting study of Egyptian and Syrian foreign policy decision-making during both the Cold War and Post-Cold War Eras. Parameters This book, which focuses on Syria and Egypt during the Cold War and post-Cold War eras, examines the factors that drive foreign policy decisions in small or weak states whose legitimacy is bound inextricably to their security.
