Arab attitudes to Israel by Yehoshafat Harkabi( Book )

44 editions published between 1971 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Because of recent changes in the explicitly declared goals of Arabs in the Palestinian conflict, this book is of singular importance, and no scholar or expert on Middle East affairs can afford to ignore it. This work, by a scholar described as "the doyen of Israeli Arabists," is the result of vast research into the attitude of the Arabs toward Israel, manifested both in their declared, explicit aims and in ideological exegeses on the roots of the Palestinian problem. Approximately one hundred twenty books written by Arabs and the Arab press and radio are herein analyzed. Harkabi's searching examination is objective. His detection of consistent patterns in what at first seems amorphous is convincing. If there is such a thing as a science of political psychology, Harkabi is its master"--

Nuclear war and nuclear peace by Yehoshafat Harkabi( Book )

22 editions published between 1964 and 2017 in English and Hebrew and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book began as a personal effort to comprehend the effect of nuclear weapons on the current era and its international system. Nuclear weapons have not merely revolutionized the military sphere but havce also left their stamp on the world order. Knowledge of the basic principles of nuclear strategy has become a prerequisite to understanding world events. Consequently, no country can remain indifferent to nuclear strategy or can consider itself exempt from its implications. The very importance of the subject precludes the assumption of a narrow technical or military point of view. Political, historical, moral, and even religious implications must be considered. Nuclear War and Nuclear Peace serves as an introduction to the study of modern strategy within the framework of international relations, as well as a basic account for laymen to the intricacies of modern strategy and its ramifications. It deals with a wide range of problems: deterrence and its implications; surprise; and preemptive and preventative attack. The problems of quantities of nuclear weapons, limitations of war (conventional, tactical and strategic), and proliferation of nuclear weapons are also discussed. In the end Harkabi introduces alternate global approaches and the problem of coalitions in the nuclear era. By focusing on disarmament and arms control; peace in the shadow of terror; and stability of the international system and peace research he brings relevance to his study in terms of the current world climate. Many books and articles have been published on nuclear strategy. Most have been designed to formulate strategic policies to suit the needs of particular countries and influence their policy. Most books on nuclear strategy have appeared in the United States, with strategic prescriptions for the United States. This book will be of tremendous interest to anyone wishing to understand the major problems of our contemporary world from a global perspective."--Provided by publisher

ʻEmdat ha-ʻAravim be-sikhsukh Yiśraʼel-ʻArav by Yehoshafat Harkabi( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in Hebrew and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a study of current works by writers and journalists in various Arab countries, examines Arab attitudes toward Israel and the Jews. The writers claim that the Jews are not a nation and that they should assimilate in the countries in which they live. They state that the international Zionist movement has created the idea of a Jewish nation in order to control the world. Judaism is only a religion and the Jews are not the descendants of the ancient Hebrews who, in any case, never ruled the land of Israel. Although these Arab writers claim to be anti-Zionist and not antisemitic, they have adopted traditional Christian anti-Jewish stereotypes and popular antisemitic views, e.g. the belief in a Jewish world conspiracy. They blame the Jews themselves for antisemitism and justify the Holocaust, maintaining that the Jews deserve to be annihilated

October earthquake : Yom Kippur 1973 by Zeev Schiff( )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"October Earthquake presents a chronological account of the days surrounding the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) War, along with the significant military and political events of each day of the conflict. Zeev Schiff's comments on Israel's exaggerated self-confidence, the hopelessness of Israeli leadership, the intelligence failure, the concept of the Bar Lev Line, the role of the air force, and the preparedness of the Arab army are interspersed throughout. Rather than judging and awarding "grades" to the parties involved in the war, this work bases itself on authentic source materials, such as recordings of command discussions during the battles, and documents. Many of the details included are not found elsewhere. The author skillfully weaves the recollections and accounts of many participants and commentators into a coherent narrative that brings to life the war's events. Although written largely from the perspective of Israelis, October Earthquake reviews political, diplomatic, and military events in Egypt that set the stage for the war. In the postscript, Schiff also explores key lessons for Israel from the Yom Kippur War, which ended its sense of invincibility and complacency, despite Israel's impressive victories on the battlefield. Winner of the Sokolov Prize, Israel's highest journalism award, this book should be read by all foreign policy specialists, historians, and anyone interested in the Middle East."--Provided by publisher
