A book talk featuring Hebrew University of Jerusalem Prof. Uri Bialer

Professor Uri Bialer discusses his new book, Israeli Foreign Policy: A People Shall Not Dwell Alone (Indiana University Press, 2020), which lays a foundation for understanding the principal aspects of Israeli foreign policy from the early days of the state’s existence to the Oslo Accords. He presents a synthetic reading of sources, many of which are recently declassified official documents, to cover Israeli foreign policy over a broad chronological expanse.

Bialer focuses on the objectives of Israel’s foreign policy and its actualization, especially as it concerned immigration policy, oil resources, and the procurement of armaments. In addition to identifying important state actors, Bialer highlights the many figures who had no defined diplomatic roles but were influential in establishing foreign policy goals. He shows how foreign policy was essential to the political, economic, and social well-being of the state and how it helped to deal with Israel’s most intractable problem, the resolution of the conflict with Arab states and the Palestinians.

Event sponsored by the UCLA Y&S Nazarian Center for Israel Studies.
