Overview

This book shows that as Israel is gradually being accepted by the Arab world, pure security considerations are becoming more important in the Arab-Israeli relationship, and "security regimes" between Israel and neighboring countries can foster moderation and cooperation.

This volume of original articles explores political and military arrangements that could lead to a more peaceful relationship between Israel and its neighbors. It advocates the establishment of a security regime in the Arab-Israeli region that would foster moderation and cooperation and reduce the chances of interstate violence, and it investigates ways to bring about such a regime.

The authors demonstrate that various peacekeeping arrangements that have been somewhat successful during the Arab-Israeli conflict could provide bases on which to build effective security regimes. In addition, they address American and UN roles, arms control, the impact of water issues, and the effect of Arab culture. Contributors to the volume include Yaacov Bar-Siman-Tov, Gil Feiler, Adam Garfinkle, Aharon Klieman, Robert J. Lieber, Charles Lipson, Amikam Nachmani, Shmuel Sandler, and Gerald Steinberg.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Regional Security Regimes outlines Israel’s current security problems clearly and cogently, and the book can be used in classes in Middle East politics and Israeli politics. Indeed, I would adopt it for my own course in Middle East politics.” — Robert O. Freedman, Baltimore Hebrew University

“The topic of this book is significant and timely, both academically and politically. The work should be useful in advanced international relations courses or courses in Middle Eastern politics.” — Allan Krass, Hampshire College
