This edited volume re-assesses the relationship between the
United States, the Soviet Union and key regional players in waging
and halting conflict in the Middle East between 1967 and 1973.
These were pivotal years in the Arab-Israeli conflict, with the
effects still very much in evidence today.
In addition to addressing established debates, the book opens up
new areas of controversy, in particular concerning the inter-war
years and the so-called OCyWar of AttritionOCO, and underlines the
risks both Moscow and Washington were prepared to run in supporting
their regional clients. The engagement of Soviet forces in the air
defence of Egypt heightened the danger of escalation and made this
one of the hottest regional conflicts of the Cold War era. Against
this Cold War backdrop, the motives of both Israel and the Arab
states in waging full-scale and lower-intensity conflict are
illuminated. The overall goal of this work is to re-assess the
relationship between the Cold War and regional conflict in shaping
the events of this pivotal period in the Middle East.
The Cold War in the Middle East will be of much interest to
students of Cold War studies, Middle Eastern history, strategic
studies and international history."
