Summary

This new book looks at the relationship between the Israeli armed forces, the government, and the origins of the 1967 War.

Ami Gluska discusses the effect of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) on Israel’s defense policy between 1963-1967 against the backdrop of the developments in the Middle East. In addition, he describes in detail the decision-making process leading to the Arab-Israeli Six Day War in June 1967 through the prism of the relations between the military and political echelons. He shows how the Six Day War was a watershed event in the Middle-Eastern conflict and had a profound effect on the development of the Palestinian problem and the character of the State of Israel over the past four decades.

This book will be of great interest to students of Middle Eastern politics, strategic studies, Israeli politics and military history in general.
