The Superpowers and the Syrian-Israeli Conflict: Beyond Crisis Management?


"The Middle Eastern problem is suffused with emotion and ignorance. It is both good and important to have Cobban's perceptive and cool dissection of a truly complex issue." Zbigniew Brezezinski Counselor, Center for Strategic and International Studies Former National Security Adviser "Middle East analyst Cobban's 'historical case study of how things were in the Israel-Syria theater during the years 1978-1989' was largely completed before Iraq's invasion of Kuwait, but the events of the past year make this book more, rather than less, relevant. . . . Cobban's focus, then, on these two heavily armed nations and their superpower relationships could hardly be more timely." Booklist
