Periphery : Israel's Search for Middle East Allies, Hardback Book

Periphery : Israel's Search for Middle East Allies Hardback

Description

The book analyzes Israel's strategic thinking about the Middle East region, evaluating its success or failure in maintaining both Israel's security and the viability of Israeli-American strategic cooperation.

It looks at the importance of the periphery strategy for Israeli, moderate Arab, American, and European efforts to advance the Arab-Israel peace process, and its potential role as the Arab Spring brings about greater Islamization of the Arab Middle East.

Already, Israeli strategic planners are talking of "spheres of containment" and "crescents" wherein countries like Cyprus, Greece, Azerbaijan, and Ethiopia constitute a kind of new periphery.

By looking at Israel's search for Middle East allies then and now, the book explores a key component of Israel's strategic behavior.
