Summary

"Defense and Diplomacy in Israel's National Security Experience defines the central concepts of Israel's national security doctrine as deterrence, geography, manpower, quantity versus quality, offensive maneuver warfare, conventional versus unconventional threats, self-reliance, great power patronage, and regional partnerships." "The author describes and explains how these concepts have influenced the war-fighting experience of the Israel Defense Forces, including the air force and the navy. Special attention is also paid to Israel's relationships with the United States, Turkey, and India as they relate to the Jewish state's national security; the motives behind Israeli foreign and arms exports policies; and whether Israel's national security doctrine ought to include a capability to threaten the existence of hostile Arab (and Islamic) governments."--BOOK JACKET.
