After years of vacillating on Palestinian national aspirations,
the majority of Americans, the author notes, have come to favor the
establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the West Bank
and the Gaza strip. Considering what accounts for changes in US
policy on Israel-Palestine, this volume:
- delivers a thorough assessment of the role of international and
domestic factors in shaping US policy in this area
- considers how US policy has evolved from the Camp David
negotiations of the 1970s up to the occupation of Iraq in the mid
- explores the significance of American public opinion and the
pro-Israel and Arab lobbies in the evolution of US policy
The Arab Lobby and US Foreign Policy will be of interest to
students and scholars of Foreign Policy and Political Science,
Current Affairs and American Studies.
