A path-breaking collaboration between an Israeli arms control expert and a Jordanian policy advisor, this concise book offers a frank assessment of Arab and Israeli perceptions of their security problems. Building on the bilateral and multilateral peace process, the authors propose a set of measures to increase trust between the two sides and break out of the security dilemma in which a move by one side to strengthen itself provokes the other side to do the same.

This book is of critical historical importance. Feldman and Toukan have raised Arab-Israeli mutual exploration to a new and exceptionally sensitive level. They have demonstrated thoughtfully and brilliantly that a new era of Mideast analysis has begun . . . must reading for policymakers and students of the area alike. This is a wise, stimulating, and incisive volume . . . should be thoroughly discussed in future regional security talks.--Steven L. Spiegel, UCLA
