This book charts the progress of American diplomacy in the Middle East, from the end of World War II to the administration of Ronald Reagan. As the Arab-Israeli dispute came to dominate Middle East affairs, the Americans had to reconcile their wide-ranging strategic and economic interests with the domestic pressures to support Israel. The author analyzes and illustrates the decisions reached in Washington and examines their impact on the region's quarrels. T.Fraser is also author of " Partition in Ireland, India and Palestine: Theory and Practice" and is editor of "The Middle East, 1914-1979".
