Alliance Management Of Post-Cold War Us-Israeli Relations, Wun Liong Chau

Theses & Dissertations

Scholars have traditionally offered explanations through either the strategic role of Israel to the US, or domestic factors including the Jewish lobbies in the US, or the cultural affinities between the two states.
