Security or Armageddon: Israel's Nuclear Strategy

Louis Rene Beres, Other Lexington Books $0 (242p) ISBN 978-0-669-11131-6
Beres, who has written widely on international power, politics and the atomic threat, here brings together a panel of experts (including Avi Beker, Robert A. Friedlander, Burns H. Weston) who discuss the options, strategies and ethics of Israel's nuclear capability. The distinctly pro-Israel writers try to accommodate Israel's two somewhat conflicting goals: that the country be able to defend itself, if need be by use of nuclear arms, and that a nuclear exchange be avoided, since it could easily lead to worldwide disaster. Many facts and arguments are marshalled (40 pages of notes follow the text) and if we are no nearer a solution to the nuclear dilemma, at least Israel's options have been clarified. December
