ABSTRACT
This article provides information about the books which are related to the UN ply to the Arab-Israeli conflict. It is often remarked that the UN has devoted more time to the Arab-Israeli conflict than any other matter in its history. The quantity-if not the quality of verbiage, resolutions, quiet diplomacy and field operations is amazing. Walter Laqueur's "The Struggle for the Middle East: The Soviet Union in the Mediterranean, 1958-1968," is on the extent of Soviet influence. Laquer avoids the "cold warrior" syndrome that attributes omnipotence to the Soviets. He notes limitations to Soviet aid and trade programs in establishing new relationships and attaining a new military presence are not without costs and limitations. Harry B. Ellis, has clearly and concisely set out the basic choices confronting Israel's foreign policy in "The Dilemma of Israel," published for the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research. Ellis suggests that Israel has three general options. Israel could remain an occupying power, which would entail either the denial of certain rights to those Arabs under its control or the reduction of the percentage of Jews in the state if full citizenship were extended.
