Dilemmas of Security : Israeli Invasion of Lebanon - Politics, Strategy and the Israeli Experience in Lebanon
This is a most comprehensive study to date of the 1982 Israeli invasion of the Lebanon and its painful aftermath. It looks at what factors were involved in Israeli decision-making, shows who the actors were, and demonstrates how a hard 'realpolitik' mentality shaped Israel's thinking. Drawing on extensive research and his own first-hand knowledge of how the Israeli government and military forces operate, the author confronts the difficult questions that have been thrown into sharp relief by the Lebanese conflict and occupation. Readership: students of contemporary Middle Eastern politics and hist ory, and international affairs.
