First published in 1982, The Triangular Connection explores the relationship between two countries, the USA and Israel, and Jews resident in America.

Spanning from British Colonial times until 1949, the year in which Israel was admitted to the United Nations, the book traces the interaction between America’s Christians and Jews with Zionism and the modern state of Israel. It also details the reasons for America’s support of Israel in the past, as well as debating its continued support in the future.
