The report examines the extent to which the U.S. and U.S.S.R. have been able to affect the amounts of military spending by Israel and the Arab countries, and thus help to control the Middle East arms race with its grave potential for mutual destruction of Arabs and Israelis. Yearly quantitative data 1948-64 on the arms budgets of Israel, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq, and on such large-scale Soviet and American actions as trade, economic aid, and military aid are used in statistical correlation and multiple regression analyses.
