Hamas : politics, charity, and terrorism in the service of jihad by Matthew Levitt ( Book )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 2,552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"How is the world to understand and respond to Hamas, the militant Islamist organization that Palestinian voters brought to power in the stunning election of January 2006? This book provides the most complete and fully documented assessment of Hamas ever written. Matthew Levitt, a counterterrorism expert with extensive field experience in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza, draws aside the veil of legitimacy that Hamas hides behind. He presents concrete, detailed evidence from an extensive array of international intelligence materials, including recently declassified CIA, FBI, and Department of Homeland Security reports."
Making peace with the PLO : the Rabin government's road to the Oslo Accord by David Makovsky ( Book )
4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"After decades of branding Yasser Arafat an arch-terrorist, Israel has embraced the PLO leader as a partner for peace. In this study of one of the most extraordinary examples of secret diplomacy in the second half of the twentieth century, David Makovsky, diplomatic correspondent for the Jerusalem Post, explores the personal, domestic, regional, and international factors that led Israel's Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, and other top aides to negotiate the peace accords."--BOOK JACKET

How to build a new Iraq after Saddam ( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Whether changing the regime in Iraq is a worthwhile US policy objective depends on what occurs in the aftermath of Saddam Hussein's departure. This volume explores the most urgent challenges for policymakers in a near-term scenario. In addressing the problem of how to overcome the 20-year legacy of brutality under Saddam's rule, the authors present ideas for limiting the chaos and revenge-taking that are likely to follow Saddam's overthrow, while examining the challenges that will arise for a new leadership attempting to ensure Iraqi social stability. This collection of analyses should be a useful resource for anyone interested in building a more hopeful future for the people of Iraq
U.S. policy in post-Saddam Iraq : lessons from the British experience, by Michael Eisenstadt ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"American troops promising to end a despot's tyranny and usher in an era of freedom and prosperity in Iraq are likely to confront many of the same challenges faced by Britain when its forces entered that country during World War I. Because Britain's Iraq experience - which soon saw the abandonment of London's original, lofty aspirations and eventually ended with the violent overthrow of Iraq's British-backed monarchy - may well be the historical reference Iraqis themselves use, the United States and its allies would be well advised to review the record of Britain's engagement in Iraq and draw the right lessons from it. In this timely monograph, contributing historians and military affairs experts provide much-needed context to the ambitious U.S. effort to reconstruct and transform postwar Iraq."--BOOK JACKET

Democracy in the Middle East : defining the challenge ( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The promotion of democracy abroad, long a major tenet of U.S. foreign policy, has taken on newfound importance in the wake of the Soviet Union's collapse. President Clinton has promised to make the promotion of democracy a key element of his foreign policy. The Middle East, a region where autocratic regimes are the rule, has been largely untouched by the wave of democratization in recent years. Indeed, it may be the one area of the world where a key element of democracy, i.e., popular elections, may generate as many problems as it solves, especially if it results in the displacement of undemocratic yet friendly regimes by anti-Western Islamist forces which, once in power, may eliminate future elections and other facets of democracy -- in essence "one man, one vote, one time." These ambiguities have led some analysts to conclude that the U.S. foreign policy ideal of promoting democracy abroad should not apply to the Middle East. Others argue that we should not give up on the democratic ideal but that it should be pursued cautiously or instituted only in stages
