       Epilogue 
520    "'Fascinating... Shlaim presents compelling evidence for a
       revaluation of traditional Israeli history.' --New York 
       Times Book Review. For this newly expanded edition, Avi 
       Shlaim has added four chapters and an epilogue that 
       address the prime ministerships from Barak to Netanyahu in
       the 'one book everyone should read for a concise history 
       of Israel's relations with Arabs' (Independent). What was 
       promulgated as an 'iron-wall' strategy--building a 
       position of unassailable strength--was meant to yield to a
       further stage where Israel would be strong enough to 
       negotiate a satisfactory peace with its neighbors. The 
       goal still remains elusive, if not even further away. This
       penetrating study brilliantly illuminates past progress 
       and future prospects for peace in the Middle East"--
