Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Makes the perhaps surprising argument that in the last quarter of the twentieth century the Arab-Israeli conflict has been winding down.

The Middle East conflict, be it between the state of Israel and Arab states or between Jews and Palestinians, is a staple of international news. Utilizing both theoretical approaches and empirical evidence, Hemda Ben-Yehuda and Shmuel Sandler argue that despite the recent upswing in violence, particularly over the Palestinian issue, conflict has gradually been giving way, since the 1970s, to a more orderly regime of conflict management. By integrating ethnonational theoretical literature into their analysis, the authors move beyond the current International Relations debate over the relative merits of realist/neo-realist approaches versus neo-liberal-institutional approaches. Ethnic-state disputes are the primary source for failing to terminate the Arab-Israeli conflict.

“The Arab-Israeli Conflict Transformed is useful because it combines theory, case studies, and data analysis in a way that sets an example for further work in the area. It is not written from a position of advocacy but helps to enlighten us about the basis for alternative courses of action in dealing with a persistent and deadly conflict. Its most impressive aspect is its mastery of the evolution of a very complex rivalry in world politics. The book's basic message—that the Arab-Israeli conflict has moved in a gradually favorable direction—is convincing.” — Patrick James, University of Missouri-Columbia

“This book serves as a handy reference guide for crisis research—due in part to the methodological rigor and analysis inherent in the International Crisis Behavior framework.” — David Carment, Carleton University
