Israeli Foreign PolicyIsraeli Foreign Policy

A People Shall Not Dwell Alone

Uri Bialer

Narrated by Stephen Hanon

Available from Audible


Book published by Indiana University Press


Uri Bialer lays a foundation for understanding the principal aspects of Israeli foreign policy from the early days of the state's existence to the Oslo Accords. He presents a synthetic reading of sources, many of which are recently declassified official documents, to cover Israeli foreign policy over a broad chronological expanse. Bialer focuses on the objectives of Israel's foreign policy and its actualization, especially as it concerned immigration policy, oil resources, and the procurement of armaments. In addition to identifying important state actors, Bialer highlights the many figures who had no defined diplomatic roles but were influential in establishing foreign policy goals. He shows how foreign policy was essential to the political, economic, and social well-being of the state and how it helped to deal with Israel's most intractable problem, the resolution of the conflict with Arab states and the Palestinians.

REVIEWS:

“Bialer's book is an important compass for those standing on deck during this time of change, and a most useful theoretical framework for those who follow it from the ivory tower.”

—Ehud Eiran, Strategic Assessment

“Every so often, one comes across a new piece of scholarship that makes a signal contribution to our knowledge on a given subject. Such is the case with Uri Bialer's book on Israeli foreign policy....Bialer's book is highly recommended for all those interested in the fundamentals of Israel's foreign policy, and it will almost certainly become a standard work on the subject.”

—Alfred Tovias, Israel Journal of Foreign Affairs
