17 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and Polish and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An anthology of the most important documents on the domestic and foreign policy of the modern state of Israel, in relation to the rest of the Middle East." "This anthology, completely revised and updated from the original edition in 1984, provides convenient access to the most significant documents of the Zionist movement since 1882 and of Israel's domestic policies and foreign policies between 1948 and 2006." "Comprised largely of primary sources from Israeli, Arab, and American records, documents encompass not only political and diplomatic history but also economic, cultural, legal, and social aspects of the region as well. The second edition also addresses areas not covered by the 1984 volume: a new chapter on the pre-state period, additional documents that reflect the Palestinian perspective, and the voices of women. Divided into eight chronological sections, documents are introduced by an overview of the entire era. They are annotated and preceded by explanatory headnotes."--Jacket
Waging peace : Israel and the Arabs at the end of the century by Itamar Rabinovich( Book )

"The conflicts between Israel and its Arab neighbors have lasted for more than half a century. How can they be ended? In Waging Peace, the noted scholar-diplomat Itamar Rabinovich goes beyond the old formulas to suggest new ways of understanding how to achieve normalized relations between Jews and Arabs."--Jacket
The road not taken : early Arab-Israeli negotiations by Itamar Rabinovich( Book )

10 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the aftermath of the 1948 war, Rabinovich writes, the seeds of the present turmoil in the Middle East were sown: confused and debated borders, hundreds of thousands of Arab refugees, internal struggles over each government's political agenda. In 1949, the Arab world was divided as never before--Iraq and Transjordan were at odds with Saudi Arabia and Egypt--and each state wrestled with its own negotations with Israel. King Abdallah of Transjordan negotiated with Israel with an eye toward siezing what is now called the West Bank and--ultimately--the Hejaz in the Arabian Peninsula. The region's first military dictator, Husni al-Zaim of Syria, offered an intriguing, if illusory, opening, as he sought a permanent settlement with Israel so he could concentrate on internal issues. Zaim, the book shows, was allied to the U.S. intelligence community. Egypt approached the armistice talks with its own goals in mind, seeking the southern Negev desert and other gains. Behind the scenes stood the region's last imperial power, Great Britain, whose manipulations were suspected by all parties even where they did not exist. And farther back loomed the U.S., about to succeed Britain as the dominant Western power in the region. Within Israel, fierce debates raged over how to handle negotiations (echoing clearly in our own time), some favoring a settlement with Amman based on a recognition of Transjordan's annexation of the West Bank, others--like Ben-Gurion--advocating overtures to Egypt, as the region's most integrated and stable Arab state. With a keen analytical eye and detailed brushstrokes, Rabinovich paints a vivid portrait of these pivotal rounds of diplomacy from 1949 to 1952, showing how a permanent peace came within reach, only to slip away for years to come

Waging peace : Israel and the Arabs, 1948-2003 by Itamar Rabinovich( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considerably expanded to include the impact of the 2003 war in Iraq and its aftermath, this new edition of Waging Peace provides a unique insight into the critical debate on the future of peace in the Middle East. A former chief negotiator for Israel, noted scholar-diplomat Itamar Rabinovich examines the complete history of Arab-Israeli relations beginning in 1948. He then gives a vivid account of the peace processes of 1992-1996 and the more dispiriting record since then. His updated analysis on Iraq, Ehud Barak, and Ariel Sharon - and on the expanding role of the United States in the Middle East - sheds new light on the long and tumultuous history between Arabs and Jews." "As Rabinovich brings the conflict into this century, he widens the scope of his proposals for achieving normalized and peaceful Arab-Israeli relations. While he considers the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians - a classic dispute between two national movements claiming the same land - Rabinovich also studies the broader political, cultural, and increasingly religious conflict between Israel and Arab nationalism and discusses the region in an international context."--Jacket

Israel and the Arab turmoil by Itamar Rabinovich( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Itamar Rabinovich examines how Israel is facing a new and changing regional order in the Middle East, from the ramifications of the Arab Spring to a receding US role and beyond. The author looks specifically at Israel's evolving relationships with Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, and the Palestinians. He asserts that, although some new developments pose threats to Israel's national security and diplomatic position, Israel could take advantage of some of those changes to become a more active and better integrated player in the region's politics. For this to happen, he concludes, Israel should take advantage of the massive effort invested by US Secretary of State John Kerry to bring about an Israeli-Palestinian final status agreement."--Publisher's description
