“Despite the ups and downs in the US-Israel relationship, the close ties between the two countries is one of the few constants in the tumultuous Middle East. The relationship is complex and multifaceted, which is why a collection of essays by Israeli and American experts in very different fields is able to provide deep analysis of so many of the attributes of this relationship. And there are some real gems in this collection. Scholars and teachers will find Robert Freedman’s edited collection Israel and the United States an invaluable resource.” —Ronald W. Zweig, Taub Professor of Israel Studies, NYU

“Professor Freedman's edited book offers the most comprehensive coverage of the truly special relationships between the United States and Israel, a detailed and often penetrating set of analyses by top specialists in various aspects of those complicated relationships. All chapters are clearly written and are accessible to students on various levels and to the general, policy-attentive public. This volume should be on the shelf of anyone interested in Israel, the Middle East and, indeed, American foreign policy.” —Ilan Peleg, Lafayette College and Middle East Institute, Washington, Past President, Association for Israel Studies, 1995-7, and co-author of Israel's Palestinians, Cambridge, 2011
