A Choice Outstanding Academic Book of 1982
“For an understanding of America’s role in the Middle East in the past decade this is the best book available: informed, carefully documented, objective. It does not dodge the tough questions.” —Foreign Affairs

“Dr. Tillman’s book is a book for all seasons in the Middle East, good and bad, and it is to be commended to any student interested in the region. The key policy debates relating to the Arab-Israeli conflicts which we confront today and are likely to have to cope with for some time are all discussed.” —Middle East Journal

“A very important book, published at a crucial juncture on a most significant topic—U.S. foreign policy toward the Arab-Israeli conflict . . . uniquely useful. . . . ” —Choice

“ . . . it sets a standard that subsequent treatises will have to corroborate or contest.” —Journal of Palestine Studies
