Caught in the Middle East U.S. policy toward the Arab-Israeli conflict, 1945-1961 by Peter L Hahn ( )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As is all too clear today, American postwar efforts to ameliorate Arab-Israeli relations before they could damage American interests in the Middle East failed to achieve a lasting peace and entangled the United States in the conflict in complex ways. Peter L. Hahn explores the strategic, diplomatic, political, and cultural factors that influenced the policies of Presidents Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower as they confronted the origins and escalation of one of the modern world's most intractable disputes."--Jacket
Crisis and crossfire the United States and the Middle East since 1945 by Peter L Hahn ( )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Although it seems almost incredible today, the United States had relatively little interest in the Middle East before 1945. But the dynamics and outcome of World War II elevated the importance of the Middle East in the American mind, and the United States has viewed the region as an area of vital interest to its security and economy ever since." "Peter L. Hahn explains how the projection of American power into the region has had consequences that have forever changed the United States and the Middle East, with the rise of al Qaeda and the turbulent occupation of Iraq being the latest examples. Crisis and Crossfire surveys and analyzes the broad contours of fifty years of U.S. involvement in the region."--Jacket

Historical dictionary of United States-Middle East relations by Peter L Hahn ( Book )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The current state of affairs between the United States and the Middle East is probably the most volatile and absorbing relationship the United States is involved in today. Prior to 1941, however, the United States preferred to limit its involvement with the Middle East to launching ministries of evangelism and social welfare across the region and investing in the pumping, refining, and transportation of oil to Western markets. It was not until World War II and the Cold War, when the threat of losing control of the region and therefore losing natural resources, military bases, and lines of communication arose, that U.S. officials were motivated to take a greater interest. Since then, escalating violence in the area has led to an increase in U.S. involvement, which in most cases has been far from positive: the Iran hostage crisis of 1979-1981, the Persian Gulf War of 1990-1991, and the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003." "Historical Dictionary of United States-Middle East Relations is an essential tool for understanding how diplomatic relations deteriorated to this point. It concentrates on the history of diplomatic relations between the United States and the Middle East from the onset of the Cold War to the present through a chronology, an introduction, a bibliography, an appendix, photographs, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on the countries involved, significant events, major crises, important figures, controversial issues, and doctrines and policies."--BOOK JACKET
