Peace process : American diplomacy and the Arab-Israeli conflict since 1967 by William B Quandt( Book )

39 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 1,943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this timely new edition of Peace Process, William B. Quandt analyzes how each U.S. president since Lyndon Johnson has dealt with the complex challenge of brokering peace in the Middle East, from the 1967 Arab-Israeli war to the death of Yasir Arafat. This classic work has now been updated to reflect recently declassified U.S. government documents and other published materials relating to the Johnson, Nixon, and Clinton presidencies, and to carry the story through George W. Bush's first term. The most comprehensive account of the Middle East peace process in print, the book places the current situation in historical context and point to possible ways out of the impasse between Israelis and Palestinians. The text is complemented by extensive documentary appendixes containing significant treaties, resolutions, and speeches, which are available on the Brookings Institution's website. - Publisher

Between ballots and bullets : Algeria's transition from authoritarianism by William B Quandt( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and French and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book on Algeria looks at both the erosion of the authoritarian model and the difficulties of making a transition to democracy. Within the past decade, Algeria experienced one of the most promising experiments of opening up the political system and allowing a remarkable degree of freedom. That initial effort failed, however, when poorly designed elections were won by an Islamist party that was unacceptable to the military. The subsequent explosion of political violence has cost at least 75,000 lives in recent years. Despite this deep crisis there are reasons to believe that Algeria may emerge from its turmoil with a consensus on the need to respect pluralism and to accept the basic rules of democratic politics."--Jacket

The comparative study of political elites by William B Quandt( Book )

13 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topic of leadership has long been at the center of studies of politics. Classical political theorists were deeply concerned by questions both of who should govern, and of who in fact did rule. Recent scholarship on political elites has also focused on both of these questions, with normative theorists often asking how representative political leaders are of their societies, while their empiricist counterparts have tried to discern those characteristics of politicians that would suggest explanations and predictions of attitudes and behavior.

The superpowers and the Middle East : regional and international politics, 1955-1967 by Tarun Chandra Bose( Book )

3 editions published between 1972 and 1994 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an excellent first book by a young Lebanese scholar. He brings analytical sophistication and detailed knowledge of a wide variety of sources to bear on a crucial period when the Cold War was being fought out in the Middle East. He is quick to note that neither the United States nor the Soviet Union was particularly successful in exerting its influence in the region. In addition, the local powers quickly learned to exploit the superpower rivalry. He also vividly conveys how the Israeli challenge exacerbated inter-Arab relations. Finally, relying on Arabic sources, he gives a glimpse into the internal decision-making of Egypt and other Arab states, noting that they often overestimated their importance to outside powers. This well-researched and objective study is a welcome addition to serious history written by Middle East scholars from the region. -- from Foreign Affairs (May/June 1995)

Palestinian nationalism: its political and military dimensions by William B Quandt( Book )

10 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analysis of developments within the fedayeen movement from its origin to 1971. Many Palestinians have expressed a distinctive nationlist sentiment, but only the commando groups (the fedayeen) formed after 1965 have succeeded in giving organized expression to these feelings. Although the commandos have a valid claim to represent a substantial part of the Palestinian community, dependance on Arab regimes for arms, funds, and territory in which to organize has kept them divided along the lines of inter-Arab conflict. In spite of organizational weakness, military defeats, and problems of collective leadership, the Palestinians have had a considerable impact in the areas of political and social development.

United States policy in the Middle East : constraints and choices by William B Quandt( Book )

7 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An examination of past policy, the nature of present constraints on the policymaker, and prospects for improving U.S. policies in the Middle East in the 1970s. In addition to choices available to the United States in the Arab-Israeli zone, policies are discussed for dealing with problems in the inter-Arab context, in North Africa, in the Northern Tier, and in the Persian-Arabian Gulf. The dilemma for today's policymaker: how can the United States exert some influence in each of these areas without becoming so deeply involved that negative effects are produced? There are no easy answers. However, a clearer understanding of past policies may help to improve those of the future. A misunderstanding of regional political forces and a simplistic adherence to inappropriate lessons of the past were primarily responsible for short-sighted policies that led to deterioration of relations with the Arab world."--Rand Corporation

Algerian military development : the professionalization of a guerrilla army by William B Quandt( Book )

6 editions published between 1969 and 1972 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines some factors behind the transformation of the 130,000-man Algerian popular army into a 60,000-man professional army. Guerrillas are too independent and undisciplined to constitute a reliable post-independence army. While continuing to advise people's war and support for guerrillas abroad, Boumedienne replaced his "army of the poor" with a unified, modernized military establishment, with French and Russian training and equipment. Indonesia and Yugoslavia passed through this stage and then returned to a form of popular defense, motivated by the high cost of a modern army and the political liabilities of dependence on outside suppliers. Lacking a military threat, Algeria may never go beyond the professional army stage, but much of her sophisticated weaponry is unused. Large, heavily equipped Soviet-style divisions were succeeded by motorized brigades and an 8,000-man gendarmerie for internal security; the military is expected to help in economic development. Appended are an analysis of Algerian force structure and excerpts from pertinent documents
