About the Book

Strategists assess the opportunities confronting Israel at the century's end and offer solutions to such issues as the economic consequences of peace for security, implications of the new world order for Israel's strategic interests, Israel's nuclear weapons and a future Middle Eastern battlefield.

Table of Contents

Karsh has outlined in one volume the contemporary dilemmas of Israeli security in the widest sense. Indeed, he has produced a work that constitutes a comprehensive survey of those dilemmas and does much to elucidate them. Between War and Peace is a timely and useful work which this reviewer strongly recommends. F H Toase, Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst

"The 14 chapters, all admirably short and succinct, form a well-documented rebuttal to the arguments of an influential school of revisionist historians and social scientists who have dominated Israeli intellectual life of late. This book deepens and amplifies the concept of national security and will prove a welcome addition to any reading list for students of international relations." David Capitanchik, University of Aberdeen, International Affairs
