This seminar examines the history of the United States' involvement with the conflict between Israelis and Arabs, from 1948 to the present. Recently a great deal of attention has been paid to political tensions between the Obama administration and the Netanyahu led Israeli government, yet there is a long history of American policy makers, realist and idealist, Republican and Democratic alike, clashing with their Israeli counterparts. So too, American interests in the region, particularly the US close alliance with Saudi Arabia as well as Egypt and Jordan have undergone various transformations over the past two generations. In our discussions of secondary readings and primary sources we will interrogate the stable and variable nature of US engagement with the Arab-Israeli conflict, including efforts in conflict solving and conflict management.
