    These volumes bring together key documents detailing Israeli-Soviet relations between 1954 and 1967. A very significant and turbulent period is covered, during which there was a steady deterioration in Soviet-Israeli relations, culminating in their severance following the Six Day War in 1967. They provide insights into the Sinai Campaign of 1956 and the 1967 war and contain materials on Soviet military supplies to Egypt and Syria, the difficult negotiations regarding Russian properties in Israel, cultural and trade connections between the two countries, and fascinating descriptions of the Soviet-Israeli clash on the issue of Soviet Jewry and the possibility of Soviet Jewish emigration.
