Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Contemporary Israeli history since 1974 is analyzed by a prominent Jewish-American historian and presented as a sequel to his History of Israel: from the rise of Zionism to our time (1979). Sachar provides more than a compendium of information but a genuine source of perspective. The author looks at the 1973 Arab-Israeli war, which had a traumatic political aftermath; the attempts by Egypt to restructure its relationship with Israel and the ensuing diplomatic accords, which were overshadowed by the failure of Israel to deal effectively with Palestinian demands for self-determination; and, finally, the Israeli incursion into Lebanon. Throughout, Sachar attempts to distinguish between the verbiage of Zionist nationalism and the actions of an independent sovereign state. Highly recommended for a broad range of interests. Sanford R. Silverburg, Political Science Dept., Catawba Coll., Salisbury, N.C.
