This volume consists of speeches given by a broad array of scholars and practitioners in the area of United States policy in the Middle East. While touching on numerous aspects of the Middle East, it focuses largely on the Arab-Israeli dispute, and on the appropriate American posture in regard to that situation. While there is no unanimity of views, there is a broad general consensus that the United States must work toward a solution that does justice and equity to both sides, and that we should make it clear to all parties that we will not veer from our ultimate objective of peace and mutual accomodation.
Dr. Eugene V. Rostow is Sterling Professor of Law and Public Affairs at Yale University, formerly undersecretary of state for political affairs ( 1966-69), and now chairman of the Foreign Policy Task Force of the Coalition for a Democratic Majority and president of the Atlantic Treaty Association. Among his numerous publications are The Sovereign Prerogative ( 1962) and Peace in the Balance ( 1972).
