Abstract:

Recent events in the Middle East, particularly the Arab-Israeli war of 1967, have once again highlighted the area as a focal point of interest and concern to the major world powers. The complexity of the region has been further evidenced by the factors involved in the 1967 conflict and its aftermath. This source book makes readily available a brief appraisal of factors of strategic significance in the Eastern Arab states and Israel. Accompanying the survey are charts, tables, other supporting data, and references assembled from numerous sources, both Middle Eastern and Western, and compiled in this paper to facilitate their use. It is intended that this survey will provide the user with an understanding of the factors at work in the Middle East, the data in support of the conclusions reached, and sources for more detailed examination of the subjects discussed. Although the compilation is focused on factors of a strategic nature, it is not intended to deal solely with that aspect of Israel and the Eastern Arab states.
